FANNIE STOUT HOUSE
When Fannie Stout married Fred O'Donnell, a Dubuque attorney, in 1898 her father gave her the house as a wedding present. It is believed the faucets in one bathroom cost $16,000.
For many years after the death of Fannie, the home was used as the EGELHOF HOME FOR FUNERALS. It had a short history in the 1980s as a bed-and-breakfast. Restoration of the home began around 2008.
