The Daniel Goodenough House in Ludington, Michigan was built in 1888. It was a B&B, but apparently it has been closed since 2005. I was looking for the history of this house online and found it’s real estate listing. This house can be yours for a mere half-million dollars!

the memorial was constructed in 1888 by (as read on the plaque):
“…contributions of every class in this mixed community irrespective of creed or party, all cordially united in esteem and affection for the memory of james chaine of ballycraigy and cairncastle co. antrim who represented this county in the imperial parliament of great britain and ireland from february 1874 till 4 may 1885 when his early and lamented death in his 44th year of his age deprived his native county of one who had worked indefatigably for its interests especially in developing and improving the natural capabilities of the harbour of larne and establishing its connection with great britain, the united states of america and with the inland parts of this county.”
