The Hulburt House is a relatively uncommon Wisconsin example of the Second Empire style, immediately recognizable by its mansard roof. The mansard has two slopes, the lower of which flares out like a bell. Elaborate dormer windows with scalloped window surrounds and flat, bracketed roofs light the upper living space. The door is framed by a trio of arches to form a transom and sidelights. The house’s owner, Chauncey Hulburt, was a lumberman, so it is not surprising that the interior of his house incorporates elegant woodwork, including a parqueted walnut and oak entrance floor, an ornate mantel composed of marble and four species of wood, and black walnut window surrounds.
