The home of Mrs. Mary Donovan at 220 East Lake Street was built on the site where the family owned one of the first stores in Marceline. At this time, Lake Street was the main street in town. Next to this home was a barbershop and this building is still standing today.
The first mass to be said in Marceline was in the home of Mrs. Donovan and the marble topped bureau used as the alter is still in the family. The home is still in the family and has been since the beginning of Marceline.
