Built in the 1880s by Daniel Striker, this Queen Anne-style building was once considered the “handsomest residence in Hastings.” Born in New York State in 1835, Striker moved as a child with his family to Michigan. He was elected to several offices in Barry County, became a lawyer, and in 1871-75 was elected Michigan Secretary of State. Striker was also widely known in banking circles. He died in 1898, and after the death of his wife in 1915 the house became a hospital, later a convalescent home.
