Formerly the home of Eleutherus Cooke, this 1840's stone and brick home was moved to its current location in 1874. Sandusky's first lawyer, Cooke was also a politician serving in the Ohio Legislature and U.S. Congress. He drew up the charter for the Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad, and built other houses for the influx of settlers to the community.
One of the founders of the Firelands Historical Society in Norwalk in 1857, Cooke helped preserve the early history of the area.
