Calaveras County Points of Interest
The Willis Dunbar House is property #14 on the Murphys Historic Walking Tour. A marker on the front of the house reads:
Built by Willis Dunbar for his bride. He was superintendent of the Union Water Company. On the original property were the lumber office and sheds of the Dunbar Lumber Company, built on the site of A. Sleeper & Co.'s lumberyard which Dunbar purchased in the 1860's. House is a lovely example of the Italianate building style, which were [sic] many times rectangular. To the rear of the house there is a gable ended kitchen extension. The siding is shiplap and the property is surrounded by a picket fence.
