342 E. Main Street Yarnell Gold Care
If you read the description of the Wedding Cake House, what do you notice about this new house? Yes, it's another made with Italinate style architecture, with 10-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows and cube-shaped cupola (on the roof).
This is known as the William Pitt Hungerford House, c. 1860.
The building served as a center for the Yarnall Gold Cure and Ebert and the Schrader Funeral Homes before being returned to a private residence. Hungerford was born on his parent's farm in Novi in 1829. His parents were early settlers in this area, having arrived in 1825. He established a dry goods store at the corner of Main and Center in 1857. He died in 1874 and is buried in Rural Hill Cemetery.
