New Richmond in St. Croix County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
New Richmond Heritage Center Pioneer Village
Marcus Bell was president of the Board of Trustees when New Richmond was incorporated in 1884. He stepped down from that office because his farm was outside city limits.
The house is an outstanding example of Italianate architecture. In 1982 it was moved by the New Richmond Preservation Society, Inc. from its original siting west of the barn, approximately where the AmericInn Motel now stands.
Erected by New Richmond Heritage Center.
