Historic custom built for Captain Wm Harris in 1887 after the Lake Linden fire that destroyed 12 blocks of the village. Step back in time through the original wrought iron gate, past the the hitching post (4 places to tie up your horses) to the re-built (2017) open front porch with composite decking. Look up above the entrance door to view the stained glass. Enter enclosed vestibule which has an inlay wood floor. Proceed to grand entrance foyer with cylindrical radiator, closet and original custom banister/railing leading to the 2nd floor. Don't miss the concentric hardwood floors through-out (some rooms have carpeting).
