Joel N. Cornish, a successful lawyer and businessman who came to the Midwest from New York, commissioned the construction of a prominent mansion for his family just south of downtown. The residence, built in 1886, is designed in the Second Empire style with a mansard roof, a cupola, and a symmetrical floor plan. In 1911, the Cornish family sold the home and the residence was converted to apartments. In later years, a simple three-story addition built at the rear of the home provided space for additional units.
