This magnificent Romanesque mansion was built by Frank Stout, a lumber executive. The home used extensive wood paneling and parkay flooring as examples of products available from his lumber company. Stout was a prominent citizen of Dubuque, in fact, the Carnegie-Stout library is located across the street from this home.

He also built a mansion next door for his daughter, as a wedding present.

When Stout decided to move to Chicago, the home was sold to his sister. Subsequent owners included the Archdiocese of Dubuque, which owned the house for decades.

It is now in private hands (not open to the public) and is undergoing restoration.
