Description 

"The Georgian Revival style was commonly built in Wisconsin between 1900 and 1940 and represents an architecturally correct interpretation of the Georgian and Federal architecture of the American colonial period.

Dr. Nels Werner, a local physician, hired Edward Hancock, a prominent local architect, to design the house. Hancock designed several important buildings in Eau Claire including Boyd Elementary School, Eau Claire Senior High School and the Masonic Temple."
