Inscription.  A family residence for 95 years, the Prescott House was built in American Victorian design by miner and cowboy Clarence Prescott Sr. The University acquired the home from Clarence Prescott Jr., who lived here until 1993. Thanks to donors Dennis and Phyllis Washington, the home was restored in 1996 to its original splendor. Today UM uses it for special events.
