Inscription. Built in the fall of 1878 by Joshua Variel and his son, Will, the house was the home of several families over the next century. In 1896 Sheriff John Bransford bought the home, then sold it in 1899 to Attorney Louis N. Peter who died in the home in 1916. In 1922 it was sold to Abe & Emily Bar in whose family it remained until 1972. It was then sold to the Payne’s who in turn sold it to the Winters in 1975. In 1989 the Plumas County Museum Association became owners and began restoration of the home to its original appearance.
