What's a Zestimate?
This Queen Anne is Dayton's best example on Queen Anne style architecture. It has a beautiful front porch, a second floor veranda, decorative shingles, leaded, beveled and stained glass windows and a square tower.
Like so many of the larger homes in this neighborhood, this home had been divided into several apartments and allowed to decay before renovation in the 1980s and 1990s.
This lovely home has been totally remodeled and is now the Garnet House Bed and Breakfast.
Queen Anne No single wall plane: building made up of irregular shapes clustered together. Intricate roof line, with multiple pinnacles, variously shaped gable windows and shingles, large chimneys. Wrap around porch with spindles, dentils, pierced panel decoration, balustrade and shingled wall. Tower, with different window styles and ornaments.
Built in 1886 for John Kirby and his family. John Kirby came to Dayton to organize and be general manager of Dayton Manufacturing Company (1883), one of Dayton’s premier industries. A self-made man who rose from the bottom rank of labor, he represents an interesting ambivalence between concern for the working man and opposition to organized labor, specifically the A.F.L.
While in Adrian, Michigan, he organized the Working Man’s Mutual Aid Association. As manager of Dayton Manufacturing, Kirby was active in several management organizations opposed to organized labor, including serving as president on the Dayton Employers Association and the National Association of Manufacturers.
