The extraordinary England House, built in 1902 by the master stone cutter William England and Barbara Michelbach-England, has been carefully preserved for your family to enjoy. The red-and-white stone is locally quarried, and hand cut and the design of the home itself is unique. Barbara, a hard-working woman who was part of several societies and worked as a nurse, lived in the home for over 30 years and built it as a family home. When her husband died of strychnine poisoning, she was accused of his murder and later acquitted after only 20 minutes of deliberation. Her cousin, Steve Eck, moved to the area and finished the home with Barbara. Steve also had a hand in building the Church of the Nativity (one of the most famous buildings in Northern Arizona), the Harold Colton house, the Museum of Northern Arizona, and many structures on Northern Arizona University campus.
