Side elevation of house

John Eberts Jr. was born in 1843.[2] In 1872 he married Emma Lacey, and that same year the couple hired Raphael R. Thomas to build this house.[2]

In 2005, the city of Wyandotte purchased the house with the intent of demolishing it. However, recognizing the historic value, the city sold it as a restoration project, and the house was rehabilitated.[3]
