Significance: This house, the home of Frances E. Willard, crusader for education, abolition of the liquor traffic and the rights of women, was built in 1865 by her father. The building shows the influence of the publications of Andrew Jackson Downing, and is also a good example of the early use of concrete in the foundation walls. The house is especially significant since the W.C.T.U. has faithfully preserved the interior and its furnishings just as Miss Willard left it.
