Inscription.  

One of Main Street's finest domestic buildings, this Renaissance Revival residence features an exterior of rusticated wood blocks fashioned to simulate stone. Built as the home of lumberman E.H. Darrah (1826-1890) who was active in timbering both here and in the West. After his death, the property passed to his daughter, Mary, and her husband Charles Corbet. Corbet (1851-1927) was a lawyer, District Attorney and County Judge. Local master craftsmen altered the property for Corbet in the 1890s; in 1896 the handsome veranda was added by Andrew Braden and one year later C.B. Hastings installed the distinctive rounded window to the left of the veranda. The Corbet family retained ownership into the 1970s.
