    There’s a similar looking home in Paxton, IL, attributed to George Barber ( https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2013/10/02/1896-queen-anne-paxton-il-george-f-barber/ ) so I’m wondering if this might have been designed by that Knoxville, TN, architectural firm? Then again, this house dates from a decade later than the Paxton example so the comparison might not be valid. In any case, it is a nice example of the late Queen Anne style. Cambridge is about 30 miles southeast of the Quad cities (Bettendorf and Davenport Iowa, Rock Island and Moline Illinois) The interior looks to be relatively intact.

    It actually makes me a little sad sometimes when I see certain houses listed because of the love and care that you can tell went into them. Such is the case with this one. It looks like a very well loved home. I wonder why they’re moving and can only hope the new owner takes such great care of it.

    I live about 15 miles from Cambridge. It’s our county seat and has one of the more beautiful court houses in the state; 1878 Second Empire. The court rooms, interior designs, wood, floors are all maintained to original design. Cambridge is a small bedroom community for the QCA (as John mentions) and has a heavy farm influence.
