Long Description:
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Significance:

With its six grand Corinthian columns supporting a portico centered on the façade, the Merrill-Maley House is a fine example of the Colonial Revival style of architecture popular in the early 20th century. Built in 1907 by Philip S. Merrill, manager of the George B. Merrill and Brothers Lumber Company, the house later become the home of Charles E. Maley, also a lumberman. As the more desirable residential development of Jackson moved north in the 1940s, State Street gradually became more commercial in character, with many of its lovely homes being demolished. Over the years, the Merrill-Maley House has been used as social club for servicemen during World War II, a women’s dress shop, an apartment building and an antique shop.

Threat:

Time and lack of maintenance continue to take a toll on this once grand home, which is currently for sale.
