• The house in the foreground is the Jones house, on the corner of Hecla and Fourth Streets in Lake Linden, as the last commentor mentioned. It was built by John E. Jones and his wife, Annabella. John was cashier and on the board of directors at the First National Bank in Lake Linden. He died in 1904, leaving his wife to raise their young children. After his death, Annabella became principal at the McKinley School, right across Hecla Street from the house. John's sister Sarah also lived with the family; it was she who was an assistant librarian at the C&H library in Lake Linden. - Jeremiah Mason

• The house in the background is actually the Bosch Home before the addition of the spire (where the chimney is seen now) and the porch section which extended the house back more.

• Hello just want to add some correct information, the house was actually built in 1880 for Annabelle Jones, the librarian for the Calumet and Hecla Mining company, Miss Jones' father was the builder of the great home, it has a lot of history and has been a very interesting place to work, I have been cleaning there for a month, very enjoyable.
