Meyer House

Hi-Bug Historic District

Celebrated lawyer, banker, and state senator William F. Meyer fulfilled his resolve to have the town’s finest residence with the construction of this Queen Anne style home in 1899. The plan, adapted from an architectural pattern book, was lavishly ornamented with spindle balustrades, scrolled brackets, stained glass windows, and applied floral garlands. Shortly after construction, remodeling increased usable space by squaring off the corner turret. Meyer’s wife, Alice, a co-founder of the local public library and an educated, cultured hostess, often welcomed guests into the elegant hall. Its golden oak staircase features a landing “large enough to accommodate a string quartet.”
