Early Fallon Residence – John Oats House

John Oats was born in 1852 in Cornwall, England. He owned the ranch at Eastgae and later purchased the Jake Allen property on North Maine Street (see here). He and his wife Nellie Eason became benefactors to the community, donating land for the first high school, for the Methodist Church, and for the large park that bears his name.
