Photograph of the J. H. McMurray home at 1125 Broad Street, built in 1895. In 1915, McMurray made changes to the structure, including replacing the front porch and cutting off the pediments. At the NE corner, the second floor open porch was enclosed and windows added. A smoking balcony was created for Mr. McMurray with wood that would not absorb smoke. The Grinnell Historical Museum acquired the property in 1965.
