    Fabulous little tower; I wonder what it’s like inside–attic or finished?

      Absolutely fabulous! The tower’s roof has an elongated hexagonal shape… that has to be very rare. The entry bay/tower hybrid is very distinctive; the house seems to be sort of transitional between Second Empire and Italianate. Judging by that and the back-banded door and window casings, I would not hesitate to say that this house was built about 20 years prior to the stated date of 1897.

    I’m pretty sure I listed this house in the link exchange a while back. My wife and I looked at this house last year, but decided Lancaster was just a little too far away from my work.
    We loved the town though . It has a lot going on for such a small rural town. Many other similar towns in our area this size have the usual half vacant or run down downtown areas. Lancaster’s is still hopping!

    Built in 1870 for J.C. Holloway, according to the Wisconsin Historical Society. The house originally faced east set back on a large lot until it was moved about 1920.

    John Chandler Holloway (1826-1901) was a farmer, merchant and banker who served in the state legislature. He moved to Platteville WI by 1877 and later lived in Iowa and California, having previously lived in New York, Michigan and Ohio.
    The first house Holloway built in Lancaster was a rare brick octagon house that survived over a century before being razed for a new school. Info and photos – go to Lancaster:

      Always amazing how many BIG old homes have been moved at one time or another. And that was before there was equipment to do it safer and easier. Just imagine a couple one day saying, “Say Honey, how about we turn the house to face another direction this Sunday after church – get a few neighbors – easy peasy?”

    How delightful! So many of the old homes are so dark but this is a sparkling one!

    Wish we could have seen into the little tower, even if it is only roomy enough for 1 person. LOVED the kitchen!
