The 1843 Washburne House was for many years the home of Elihu B. Washburne, United States Congressman from 1853 to 1869. The restored home's first floor interprets an entry hall, parlor, sitting room, library, dining room, and kitchen with adjoining pantries. All are decorated and furnished to depict the lifestyle of a well-to-do midwestern professional. On the second floor are the master bedroom and a second bedroom.
The house offers tours.
