Jane Keener converted house from summer cottage to winter house; added small room on Southwest corner and bathroom extension at rear; stairway and loft in living room; remodeled kitchen. While she was overseas with the Red Cross, Jane Keener frequently rented out the house (to other Red Cross workers). Assessment records indicate house was inherited by Elizabeth H. Keener.
