On the National Register of Historic Places, the Kimball-Stevenson House was founded by Thomas McClelland in the 1800s, and was home to several senior executives. Over time, it functioned as a brothel until it was abandoned. The building then remained unmaintained until the 1990s when attorney Michael Liebbe purchased it. Its rich architectural history can be credited to its Italianate style and red bricks as well as certain unusual features. The house is now privately owned, so tourists need to contact the owners before visiting.
