1. Northside House Marker
Inscription.  The Northside House was built in two stages, the taller section in 1890 by August Anderson and his brother-in-law John Arnquist. In 1894, August and his wife Mary built an addition.

It has been named the Northside House by the New Richmond Preservation Society because it was originally sited in an area of New Richmond popularly called "The Northside." Traditionally, this was where the flour and lumber millhands and their families lived.

The house, along with many of its furnishings, was donated to the society in 1998 by Don and Susan McIntyre. Don McIntyre was a grandson of August and Mary Anderson.
 
Erected by New Richmond Heritage Center.
