About Us

The E.C. Houston House is listed on the National and State Registry of Historic places. This 1904 14-room home incorporates Neo-Classical Revival details in its porches, door and window openings, leaded-glass windows and cornices.

Adding to the beautiful woodwork and grand stature are artifacts that have been gathered from the Burt County area. Among them, you will find an early 1700’s painting of the Last Supper and a display of Block house items in the parlor.

After ascending the open oak staircase, you enter the sitting room where you will find a 1714 trunk. Across the hall from the bedrooms is a toy room that will excite youngsters 2 to 92.

The third-floor ballroom allows visitors a firsthand view of the social atmosphere of the early 1900’s time period. Enjoy gazing upon old children’s toys and admiring the beautiful intricate clothing items and women’s and men’s accessories…
