Originally constructed in 1838 in Greek Revival style with post and beam construction. Additions from 1876-1880 feature Italianate details. In 1919, a Queen Anne wraparound porch was added by William and Martha Travis The house was once home to many prominent Canton families. In 1988 the house was donated to Canton Township and carefully moved to its current site in 1989. During the 1900’s and early 2000, many individuals and groups worked to lovingly restore the home to reflect its’ original heritage.
