This is the house at the old Dowlin Forge Papermill. Supposedly it belonged to James Dowlin.

More info here:

This was my Mother’s, Ruth Jane Dorsey’s, house from her birth 1924 until the 50’s or so. Her mother was Jane Nevin Shryock Dorsey and her father was Clarence Dorsey. I believe the Shryock brothers may have been Owen and Samuel or may have been their father Samuel and a brother.
