The Ebert House - This house was included in the 2008 calendar produced by the historical society where it was described:

"The architectural design of this home at 507 S. Saunders is associated with the Queen Anne Style. The property passed through the hands of Robert Merrill, Alvin Brown and William Thompson before becoming the home of the Ebert family from 1908 until 1953. Wilhelmina William and Ella and Bessie Ebert lived in the home during that perios until it passed to Arthur and Helena Sedersten. The home was probably built after 1908 by the Ebert's..."

Selma Ebert gave art lessons to many children in the 1950's. We went every Saturday....loved it. I was so impressed that the house had 2 staircases....one at the front of the house and the other in the kitchen.
