This grand old brick Italian Revival house stands proudly in the South Street Historic District in Kalamazoo. William A. Wood built this home for his family in 1877. Unfortunately, he died shortly after moving into the new house but his widow Sarah lived in the home until her death in the early 1900s. in 1905, William E. Upjohn Purchased the home on South Street. Upjohn was a physician who patented a new type of pill that was easier to crush into a powder and created the Upjohn Corporation. I love the tower with the round porthole style window. It must be a beautiful view out the windows of the ornate brick tower. If you are ever in Kalamazoo take a trip down South Street, there are some beautiful old homes in the neighborhood.
