E. P. and Belle Randall Case House

-A A +A
1880, William Le Baron Jenney. 467 4th St.

The only survivor, and the most modest of five houses designed by Jenney in Manistee, this one was for E. P. Case (1845–1886), lumberman John Canfield's bookkeeper. The L-shaped, clapboarded wooden house rests on a limestone foundation. Its intersecting gabled roof with wide overhang is supported by open brackets and decorative king-post trusses and crowned with finials.
