1. Cupola House. Cupola House, built in 1871, is a stately example of Gothic revival style architecture and, as such, is rivaled by no other in Door County. This house was built by Levi Thorp, one of the earliest settlers in the Egg Harbor area, and reflects the position this early merchant had in the county. This house was paid for with gold dust he brought from California in a chamois money belt after the gold rush of 1849. He was particularly careful in the selection of wood for his new home and found knots unacceptable and, as renovation has revealed, he was most successful in avoiding them.
