Description 

Italianate style brick, wood and limestone mansion, now a bed and breakfast, was built in 1874 by William Judd Mix.

Not much is published about Dr. Mix, we know he was born on Apr. 21, 1823 in Grand Isle, Vermont and died on Mar. 17, 1905 in Iowa Falls, Hardin County, Iowa. He is buried, along with his wife and (likely) daughter, here in Riverview Cemetery. He was married to Harriet Lee Brown Mix, who died in 1849. Abbie D. Mix, also buried here, was born in 1848 and died in 1893.

The house is privately owned and is an upscale bed & breakfast.
