The Rev. Joseph Wilson (1797-1891) built the house between 1861-1865. Although born blind, Rev. Wilson supposedly inspected every piece of lumber for his home by hand. It was inherited by his son, George Wilson, then by grandson Shedie "S.J." Wilson and Ora Wilson in the 1940s.

The third generation S. J. Wilson sold the estate “lock, stock and barrel” in 1971 to fourth generation, his daughter, Virginia Wilson Hill and her husband Lowell.

The home remained in the family until the 1990s. In the mid 1990s, Roger Kash and Cathleen Jackson purchased the Wilson House. But in 2012, evidently the house was in a divorce dispute, and a court ordered the couple to sell it. The property was sold to Alexander Wolaver, a musician. Wolaver is a member of the Annie Moses Band, and he had plans to use the home for music education purposes. The home burned in 2016. NRHP 1988
