432 Spruce Street, Manistee, MI, United States
ARCHITECT: Christian Petersen
CONSTRUCTED: Circa 1870s
Built in the 1870s, this home is named after the owners of the dwelling who lived there roughly 50 years later.
Arriving in Manistee from Rockford, Ill., father and son, Gustave and Arthur Falleen, purchased the Manistee Drop Forge company in 1924 after it had sat idle for two years.
The drop forge was thus renamed the Fallen Drop Forge which continued to operate for several decades under said moniker.
Gustave Falleen and wife occupied this home for several years. This Second Empire home is one of the few examples of this style which still has a mansard roof.
