Tuttle House

Lapeer lumberman Columbus Tuttle and his second wife, Linda, had this Queen Anne house built around 1890. Tuttle's planing mill provided lumber for the county's earliest homes and businesses. After lumbering declined during the 1880s, Tuttle's mills produced finished and ornamental wood products. Tuttle's grand-daughter, noted author Marguerite deAngeli, featured this house in her 1936 children's book Ted and Nina have a Happy Rainy Day.
