This Italianate cream brick house on Oliver Street in Owosso was built by Amos Gould in 1860. When Owosso was incorporated as a city Gould became the city’s first mayor. He also organized the first bank in Owosso operating it out of this house. He owned large amounts of property around Michigan and lumbering interest in the Upper Peninsula around the Gould City area, and if you’re wondering, yes the town was named after him.
besides the Gould house, there are several beautiful old ornate houses in Owosso, I love driving around the area looking at them.
