Hiram Barnes House
255 Belle River
Circa 1929

This Farmhouse Style home with wraparound porch was built in 1929 by (it is believed) Hiram Barnes.  At some time an addition was built onto the rear of the home.  Farmhouses were built for need rather than design, often featuring functional porches as a transitional space creating a much more informal and inviting exterior.

The original front section of the house contains heavy beams with square nails.  The addition appears to be simply built on stumps.  There are three bedrooms and one small bathroom on the second floor.  Previous owners completely restored the original porch columns.

Mr. and Mrs. Barnes had two children, Rowland and Mabelle (Mrs. Roy Ogden).
