W. H. Stark House is a historic home built in 1894. The house was built in the Queen Anne architectural style and features a distinctive turret, stained glass windows and ornate woodwork. The house has been open for guided tours since 1981.
The W. H. Stark House was built and occupied by William Henry Stark and his wife Miriam Melissa Lutcher Stark. Their son H. J. Lutcher Stark also occupied the home until he moved away in 1905. Through their travels the Starks became avid collectors who instilled in their son a lifetime dedication to philanthropy and arts that continue to benefit the area today.
