This brick three-story house sits along the St Joeseph river in Three Rivers Michigan. It was built by Arthur Silman. He had a blacksmith shop on the first floor and his family lived above on the upper floors. In 1903 he deeded the home to his daughter, Sue Silliman. She was a librarian and state historian for the Michigan Daughters of the American Revolution. She donated the house to the city of Three Rivers just before her death in 1945. It is used today as a museum.
