Long Description:
"910 East Walnut Street; built 1885-1887 by Dr. Walter Camp in the Queen Anne style. Two story frame house with gable and hip roof combination. Two of three gable wings have chamfered corners. There is an eight sided tower in an unusual location in the southwest corner of the house rather than on the facade. Simple scroll brackets are set at the corners of the eaves within the gable pediments and there are smaller brackets set at intervals beneath the roof eaves elsewhere. The porch crosses the facade from the house corner to the inside corner of the facade wing and is supported on turned posts. There is a spindlework entablature with scroll brackets at the porch cornice beneath the porch eaves. The east gable wing has a jerkinhead and highly decorative gable face. The house retains its original character." - Historic District nomination

The house appears to be in very condition and continues to serve as a single family home.
