Tour Highlights The Victorian House This 1910 residence features a unique dormered roofline, Victorian decoration and full front porch. The interior boasts 12 foot ceilings, and most of the window frames and glass are original from that time period. The Snell House An outstanding example of the Craftsman Style of residential architecture popular in the United States between 1905 and 1930. The living room and dining room, with their large windows, oak floors, oak paneled wainscoting, oak hutches and cabinets with leaded glass doors, brass lighting fixtures and ashlar stone fireplace, evoke the feeling of an English manor house. The Eder House This Colonial Revival home was built in 1905 of unbaked adobe and has a hip roof and a full-width veranda. The floor covering

in part of the house is original from 1938 and the ornate door knobs and door hinges are made from copper. Most of the home has been restored to reflect the time period in which it was originally built. IOOF Building Constructed in 1898 for the Independent Order of Oddfellows, this was the first two-story structure in the business district. It was built of fired bricks in the Victorian Vernacular style. The meeting rooms in the Oddfellows Hall were furnished with massive hand-carved furniture which is still in use today.
