  5. The Barnes Home
415 Cedar Street, Manistee, MI, United States


The Barnes family, who were the first owners of this home, were relatives of the Wheelers, who owned the large mansion that was originally adjacent to the north. The Barnes home originally featured the Eastern Stick Style exterior, which was characterized by lap siding, divided into small squares, and painted to highlight varied design patterns.

Perhaps the most unusual feature of this home is that it is still occupied by the family of the original builders. Burton P. and Blanche Barnes lived in the home for more than half a century.
