Long Description:
"900 East Walnut Street; built in 1896 by Charles McCann, president of the Springfield Wagon Works and business entrepreneur, in the Queen Anne style. Two story frame house with a gable and hip roof combination. The facade is dominated by a projecting gable wing with chamfered corners beneath the soffit. The porch fills the facade supported on doubled cast iron fluted columns with Corinthian capitals. The porch entablature is decorated with plaster cast swags. On the west elevation is a small porch at a side entrance with cast iron columns matching those of the facade porch. Between the first and second stories is a belt course about four feet wide, covered with butt shingles. The first story window openings have diamond shaped leaded glass upper sash. The house retains its original character." - Historic District Nomination

The house appears to be in very good condition and currently is a bed and breakfast.
