Edgar Leavitt Home

Circa 1901

In 1901 newlyweds Edgar and Bertha Leavitt moved into a one room house that had a shed for a kitchen on this property. He learned the trade of brick making and burned lime in a limekiln for mortar. Edgar was also a mason and carpenter and built not only his own home, but did the brick and plasterwork on many of the early homes in Mesquite.
