Dwight Lamb House (Burned Down)

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Dwight Lamb House, 453 Woodlands Drive; c. 1887 (re-located 1902).A 26-room mansion of frame construction, it was moved in 1902 by Crowe Brothers of Chicago, building moving contactors, from a site at 6th Avenue South and South 5th Street to the present site atop an eight-foot-hill. It took three months to move the house eleven blocks and up the hill. The house was altered at that time, resulting in an eclectic design. The Queen Anne Style was the major influence in guiding the massing and overall composition, while many details and ornamental features are of Second Renaissance Revival Style derivation.
