This is one of the many historic homes in the Iron River area that I went searching for because they were on the National Register of Historic Places but didn't have a photo in the wikicommons. It turned out to be much more difficult than I anticipated, since many of the addresses were in Stambaugh and Stambaugh doesn't exist anymore, having been incorporated into Iron River in 2000. Presumably to avoid duplicating names, many street names in Stambaugh were changed in the process. I would have been more successful if I'd known that and done a little more research on the changes before I set out! But this one was easy. Here's what the National Register says, "This house is two-story Prairie-style house with a massive segmental-arch front porch which extends to one side to form a porte cochere. The house was first owned by Joseph Harris, owner of the Harris Clothing Store in Iron River, which operated from about 1910 to about 1925."
