Facility:The Moses Fowler House
Description:The Tippecanoe County Historical Museum is housed in the English Gothic house built by Moses Fowler in 1851. Fowler, one of the area's leading merchants and cattlemen, was anxious to have a home reflecting his social status. He obtained a copy of the British book Architecture of Country Houses and proceeded to design his own house. The home was built by a local contractor using native white oak and black walnut woodwork. The ornamental work on the parlor ceilings was done by Italian artisans from New York who traveled to Lafayette via the Wabash and Erie Canal. Use as a county historical museum.
