"This elegant brick structure was altered somewhat in 1945 when a complementary addition was added at its east end. When the home was built, the Doric portico facing Gilbert Street and the open porch surrounding it served as the main entrance. A carriage house is located behind the residence.

"Sumner Moon, a prominent businessman in Eau Claire, was the president of the Northwestern Lumber Company, which was established in 1863 by his father, Delos Moon, Sr., and his fatherís partner, Gilbert Porter. Sumner Moon was also president of the Gillette Rubber Company, a tire manufacturing business established in 1917 which operated, successively, as U.S. Rubber, Uniroyal, and Michelin until closing in June, 1992."
