    Historic survey, Wisconsin History linked up top, says this was built 1856 with additions in 1898 which is probably when the tower porch thing was added.

      I THOUGHT the tower porch thing was a little off-scale, relative to the large gable on the front elevation.

    Shenzhen & SoCal,

    Handsome doors and windows. And I particularly like the icebox.

    I bet there is a story as to why that tower, which looks like a cake decoration to me, was added.

    I believe the cabinet in the kitchen corner aligns with the built-in in the corner of the dining room. So two upper doors are a pass through (or could at least be used that way).

      It might be the camera but I think that wall with the green cabinet is wider. Also the sign over the door says “more rooms down stairs” or something. Basement door? I love to guess too.

    Posted last year, went off market for a short time but recently back on with a new agent and new photos. Updated and moved to front page.

    Ugh, been one of those days so only two posts for the day. 🙁

      Interesting… stylistically, the steep Mansard sloped “tower” porch roof (not really a tower) with the prominent iron cresting would have been long past being current and stylish in the early 1900’s. So many houses from the 1870’s and (early) 1880’s featured small enclosed towers of this kind so that makes me think it probably dates from this earlier period. No matter, the interior is surprisingly rich and sympathetic to the period. The use of wallpapers and tin ceilings were employed for great effect here.

    All I could think of was, “How utterly charming!”

    Is the tower separate from the rest of the house? Could a person go there from the other upstairs rooms or would you have to come back downstairs and go up a separate stairway

    Love the kitchen!

    Sanborn maps show a surprising similar floor plan in 1887 and 1903 with the tower being the only visible change. Historical records indicate the front gable section facing the street to date back to 1856 with later remodeling and additions. There must have been another remodel/addition between 1856 and 1887 prior to the addition of the tower between 1897 and 1903, when the Sanborns clearly show it added.

    So many cosmetic things I would change in this home! Love all the porches. The ceiling in the one room is gorgeous! Love all the kitchen cabinets and the pantry too, but not so in love with the slanted cooking island. Wonder what the basement looks like. The offering price seems reasonable. With only 2,500 people it is a charming community.

    Numerous anecdotes about this home have appeared over the years, its history as old as the town itself. Built by pioneer farmer Orson Bacon (1810-1882), expanded by liveryman Eugene D. Webster (1846-1932), purchased in 1905 by butcher John P. Wolff (1859-1936) and owned since then by 4 generations of the Wolff-Roberts family. It’s the oldest surviving house in Neillsville, and with its picturesque belvedere, a local landmark.

    I could swear I remember this house from Victorian Homes Magazine; maybe 15 years ago. If not, it has an identical twin, funny tower porch thing and all!

    Very nice decorating. Appealing home.

    Not usually a fan of wallpaper but I think it works quite well in this charming home.
