From an email from Phyllis McAllister at 407 Miami Avenue - When the McAllisters moved next door into 407 Mimai in 1972, Mrs. Scallan told them 411 Miami had been her family's summer home. They sold their home in Hyde Park and moved permanently to Terrace Park, probably beofre 1920. At some time they sold off the property that became 407 Miami. Mrs. Scallan always referred to 407 Miami as "the cottage" and it was probaly built as a summer cottage. Mrs. Scallan was close friends with Deborah Boone Startsman who spent time with Kris Cryer and Ginny White when they were writing their book about Indian Hill.
The Hamilton County Auditor has 1922 as the building date for this house and 407 Miami, both of which are probalby wrong. Dot Rixey knew this house as a summer cottage. 1922 is problay the date when the house was made into a year 'round house rather than just a summer cottage. It's difficult to date the building of these houses from the deeds since they are built on parts of a very large lot that has many houses on it. It's hard to figure out what deeds for land go with which houses. Phyllis McAllister says the Scallans owned this house during WWI. Mrs. Scallan's son, Robert, lived in Indian Hill in 2008.
