City Directories and History: “Captain Arnold Anderson Browning built his two-and-a-half-story residence in 1878. Brick piers in an “L” shape provide the foundation for the frame structure. Double piazzas on three sides with turned columns and corner brackets enhance the exterior. A shingled pediment rises over the entrance. Windows are two over two (2/2) lights with simple pediments above. There are two interior corbel capped chimneys.
Captain Browning, a lumberman, was a donor of land and materials for the construction of the county courthouse and jail.”
