c. 1892

Charles came to Bay City in 1864 from Ithaca, NY, to work for sawmill owners Henry Sage and John McGraw, eventually buying the Bay City Dredging Co. His home's architecture is Shavian Manorial, a Queen Anne/Tudor Revival style named after the 1860s/70s neo-medieval work of the English architect Richard Norman Shaw. It was designed by William H. Miller, Ithaca's most prominent late 19th/early 20th century architect, who designed many of Cornell's buildings. Detroit architects Scott & Scott supervised the construction. The home, which has 23 rooms, 9 replaces, and a grand central staircase in the two-story entrance hall, is marked by projecting cross gables, half-timbering, and liberal use of Tennessee sandstone.
