Decatur-Dickinson - Marcus Hoesly House (1891)                                 #12            


Decatur Dickinson came to Neillsville after the Civil War and began working as a clerk in his uncle's store, He eventually went into business for himself, and his success led to the building of this amazing Queen Anne, designed by Clark River Falls architect James McGillivray and constructed by G.W. Trogner. The house interprets the irregularity and asymmetrical massing indicative of Queen Anne design, along with a strong influence of Charles Eastlake. The most captivating feature of the house is the multitude of foor planes. In 1912, the house was sold to Marcus Hoesly, where his grandson, Allan Hoesly, still resides. NR
