Architect Louis Kamper designed this house for himself and his wife. The house is Beaux-Arts classical in its formal horizontality and extensive use of pilasters and round arches. Kamper was trained in the New York City office of McKim, Mead and White before coming to Detroit in 1889, and the influence of that firm is evident here.
