The oldest black residence in Bartow, this Victorian style building was built in the late 1800s by Lawrence Bernard Brown, a self-taught master carpenter. Brown invested in property in Bartow and built a large number of houses which he sold or rented, becoming a leading citizen in the community. The house is restored and houses a museum.
