National Register of Historic Places in Storey County
This residence, built for lumberman C. J. Prescott, is one of the few buildings to survive the Great Fire of 1875.
The architectural style includes elements of the Greek Revival and Gothic Revival styles popular when Virginia City was founded. When the town was rebuilt, the Italianate style was fashionable and a number of very fine residences were built in this style to include the Savage Mansion and the Piper-Beebe House.
The picket fence and many of the interior details are original.
The building is a private residence not open to the public.
