RICH HOUSE. Located at 890 West Third, this home was built inn 1881 by Jacob Rich, a wealthy lumberman. Originally doors along this side of the house and others on the front allowed guests to leave the home onto a large veranda.

The exterior has appeared in several books on Victorian architecture, including American Painted Ladies. Inside, the home features 12-foot ceilings, five fireplaces and walnut woodwork in its thirteen rooms. Pocket doors on the main floor feature the letter "R" (for Rich) etched in the glass.
