John Oliver Michael built the historic John Oliver Michael House in 1903. As you come up the steps of the open front porch and enter the front door, you will step into the foyer, which leads to the parlor and dining room. All three rooms boast the original virgin pine as the beaded board for the walls and ceilings. The wood used for the beaded board was cut from the trees of the home place. The dining room also features the original fireplace. You will then enter the keeping room, which adjoins the open-plan kitchen, and the sunroom. Also on the first level is a private bath. The stairs off of the foyer lead to the landing on the second level. Here you will find two large bedrooms and a bath. All the flooring on both levels is of the original heart of pine.
