On this corner lived a Quaker family named Anthony who
built the first brick home in the Town of Mayfield. The area
became known as "Anthony's Village" or Anthonyville.

made scythes and axes and small farm tools. One of the
Anthonys born in the brick house, George T. Anthony,
became governor of
Kansas 1876 - 1879.
