It was the 1860â€™s when George Wilmot & his Business Partner Edward Trump had a contest to see who could build the most extravagant house in Fenton. George lost at the time but YOU are the winner because the home & all its historic glory still stands today. This Victorian/Gothic Revival Home is a testament to the Michigan Fever that gripped the East Coast after the Erie Canal opened & opportunities in Michigan & Fenton were boundless. The Wilmotâ€™s were prominent in Fenton. When they passed Mina Chapin purchased the home and lived there with Husband Addison. He was the son of one of the first settlers in the area. The home was lived in, used for boarding schoolgirls & rented out. The Block Garage separate from the house was built to house one of the first Model Tâ€™s to frequent the area as the motor car transformed Michigan & America. Passed down from owner to owner, this home has been maintained with love & respect.
