John Carveth House
In 1867 Ionia County native John Carveth (1841 - 1910) settled in Middleville to read law. In 1868, after the completion of his studies, he was admitted to the bar and established a practice in Middleville. Carveth served one term as state senator for Barry and Eaton counties in 1885-86. Carveth moved to Grand Rapids in 1895 and sold the house to his brother-in-law and former law partner Aaron Clark, a wealthy landowner and founder of the bank of Caledonia.
