Regarding McMullin-Warren House.
...One of the planing mills, more specifically a planing, scroll and lath mill, was the operation of David W. McMullin, who also was Sebree's only building contractor. McMullin, who earned a reputation as a craftsman builder particular about details, constructed numerous houses throughout the town and also is credited with the Sebree United Methodist Church. ... His finest house, and the only one to remain intact, is the McMullin-Warren House, an exuberant full-blown example of the Queen Anne style. Completed in 1901, it not only heralded the new century, but it also served as a prominent advertisement for McMullin's mill and his skill as a builder.
