The Italian Renaissance house was built in 1916 by Colonel O.C.Barton, a prominent business man and philanthropist, to enjoy with his wife Tillie, and their family. The mansion, since serving as a residence, has served well and long in the community. The house provided army office headquarters during WWII, and served for many years as the county health department before becoming the Heritage Center.
