The house in the photo is NOT the Barney Kelley house. This house was built in 1905 by V.J. Dahl and is a block away from the Barney Kelley house. The V.J. Dahl house is currently owned by St. Colman Catholic Church as the Priest's residence. The V.J. Dahl house is at 223 East East Street, while the Barney Kelley house is at 321 East East Street.

By the way, the Barney Kelley house now has a slate roof.

The house I found at the indicated location on 5/26/18 has changed a lot since the original photo was posted on the web site. It's a different color. The decorative roof seen from the satellite view has been replaced.
