Narrative Description The Mann House is a basically rectangular, cross-gable-roof Late Victorian structure with walls covered in clapboard siding and a modicum of Eastlake trim in the vergeboards, small front door, porch and blind triangular gablets on the tower roofs. A pyramid-roof tower rises above the entrance at one front corner. Behind the house stands a gable-roofed wooden carriage house or stable.
Statement of Significance The Mann House is an excellent example of typical middle-class domestic architecture of the early 1880s. Daniel Sears Mann had this home built for his family in 1883-1884 so that his daughters could attend school in town. Mann's daughter Jessie Ellen resided here until her death in 1969. The house is now a museum operated by the Michigan Historical Center. Most of the original furnishings remain including the family's sleigh, buggy, and many household implements.
