A little more than 2 miles east of Cantril, on Iowa 2, is a large brick Italianate house (c. 1860) that was restored in the late 1980s. The windows are arched and there is the usual overhanging hipped roof with brackets. The vertical height of the walls is impressive, as is the height of the rooms on both floors.
