The classic 1891 Hannah House at Sixth and Pine Streets is an excellent example of the fine historic architecturally significant buildings in this neighborhood. With Perry Hannah's encouragement, a series of late Victorian homes, all crafted with extensive use of fine woodwork, spread out along Sixth Street and onto nearby streets. Over time, the neighborhood has retained a surprising degree of appeal and unity. Even some of the brick streets have endured. The Hannah House itself is recognized as one of the finest Queen Anne homes in Michigan. [†]
