Mathias Welch House

Built 1888

The Mathias Welch House is an unusually intact and rare local example of 19th century vernacular brick residential architecture in the Italianate tradition.

Mathias Welch was a native of Illinois who moved to Central Point with his wife Mary in 1892 where he built the first flour mill in town, the Farmer's Exchange Internal Roller Mills. He was an important industrialist and was identified with the Populist movement in Jackson County.
