National Register of Historic Places in Douglas County
This residence, built for mining engineer William Quartus Brown, is the best preserved and best designed example of Queen Anne architecture in the town of Riddle. The house also has elements of the Colonial Revival style.
Some distinctive stylistic features are:
The interior is finished in the tradition of the English Arts and Crafts Movement with fine woodwork, including built-in cabinetry and chimneypieces.
The brick wash house, built in 1894, is a legacy of the hotel which previously occupied the property.
