First Murphy House

The First Murphy House, constructed in 1902 by 17 year old Michael J. Murphy, was the first of many cottages and notable structures designed and built by Murphy. He had a significant influence on the character and architecture of the village of Carmel during his career.

In 1990, when the little cottage was in danger of being demolished, the First Murphy House Committee was formed under the auspices of the Carmel Heritage Society. The house was moved to its present site at the corner of 6th and Lincoln Avenues and completely restored.
