Wickham House

-A A +A
1882, O. P. Wickham, contractor. 616 S. 7th St.

The patterns of the wood detailing, posts, and capitals of this large brick Queen Anne dwelling indicate that elements of the earlier Eastlake style continued on into the middle to late 1880s. The local contractor and builder O. P. Wickham constructed the house for his own use.
