Greek Revival Historic Home in Prescott

606 North Lake Street, Prescott, WI

Today I was traveling through Prescott, Wisconsin to list a home for sale and I came across a great representation of the Greek Revival style. Built in 1854 by Hilton Doe, the home sits just off the St. Croix River, and probably at that time, had an even better view of the river (no houses in front of it). Mr. Doe was apparently a pioneer of the area, with the home remaining in the Doe family until 1867. Around 1895, Julius Knoblach acquired the property and the home was in his family for the next 57 years. In 1994, the home was restored and looks fantastic for its age.

  1. I guess I would feel right at home in Wisconsin! We’ve got many beautiful Greek Revivals in Massachusetts and it’s one of my favorite architectural styles. I wrote a post about the style for my own blog recently and now I can’t stop taking photographs of them. Fun to see these from your neck of the woods.

  2. In many of the small river towns in Wisconsin, you can find a few surviving Greek Revivals, and a few in Minnesota too. Thanks for visiting. I really want to travel to the east coast some day to photograph your historic buildings.
