Our 1902 Queen Anne when it was new

A closer picture. Our research shows Charles E. Russell bought the lot on Harris St. in 1895 and then tore down a then-existing house. We think he started construction of our house - which he designed based on his family home in England - in 1898. Given its size (four floors and about 5,500 square feet including attic and basement), brick construction with fish scale detail, intricate woodwork, and severe Northern Michigan winters, it makes sense the house took 3-4 years to build.
