This place definitely has a past! Sit back and read some history!!!
A magnificent Queen Anne style Victorian home located in the NW corner of Carnigie Library Park in Las Vegas. Built in 1881 by Charles W. Wiley, a railroad grading contractor who later became the first Mayor of East Las Vegas in 1888 and he is also credited for bringing in electric street lighting to town. In 1890 the home was bought by Dr. H.J. Mueller and his wife Zella who lived there for twenty years. It is said that Zella still lives in the house to this day (in ghostly form of course). The story was that Dr. Mueller was very jealous of his wife and only let her out on the widows walk.
The home has an irregular floor plan, broad roof, two sided veranda and bracketed columns. One of the first built in this Carnegie park historical District, the house was of Victorian eclecticism has "second empire" windows and porch brackets and Queen Ann detailing. The octagon tower is unusual with its widow walk and faux "fishtail" painted tin roof. After many owners, additions, stucco and a hundred years of family living, many preservationists restored it to near original form in 1996. Mack and Dolly Crow have owned the home since 2000.
