This house was built in the 1860s by Asa Dow who came from Chicago to go into business with D.L. Quirk. Following the death of his wife Mr. Dow sold the house to the Lambert Barnes family who lived in it for forty-seven years. (1875-1922).

The magnificent stairway, with its splendid curve, spindled bannister and sturdy newel post, was expertly carved from the wood of a butternut tree.

The stenciling, on the left of the doorway and above the door, once followed up the steps. Several rooms have stenciled borders with other unique designs. This work is found in no other structure in Ypsilanti.
