The house was constructed in three stages, it began 1871 and was completed in 1905. The Hubbard family lived in this home till 1938, following which it was bought by the Blue Earth County Historical Society. The decor and furnishings have been retained, giving visitors a glimpse into the early 20th-century lifestyle.
