1898 Victorian: Queen Anne

Cremer House
Cremer House
In 1897 John Cremer owner & proprietor of Cremer’s Department Store & Opera House, also known as Cremer’s Big Store wanted to build a home for his wife. Utilizing the local mill he hand-picked the oak and maple that adorn the house today. The house was finished by local craftsmen in the fall of 1898 for a cost of $1,500. The home remained in the family until November of 1918 when the home and surrounding property was purchased by the Catholic church for $6,000. The home became the rectory for the church and housed the parish priests of The Sacred Heart of Jesus for many years. In March of 1996 Colonel Carl Bargabos and his wife Barbara purchased the home and hired local contractors that lovingly restored the house and gave a new dress to a grand old lady. The Bargabos opened it as the Ages Past Country Bed & Breakfast in May of 1997 and operated it through 2014.

More About This House

The original woodwork, hardwood floors, and stained glass windows still grace this Victorian Queen Anne home. Four bedrooms are located on the second floor and two on the third, each with its own private bath. Each upper floor also has an additional room for lounging or an office. The main floor parlor and adjoining study are presently a bedroom suite. The main floor also features the foyer with open staircase, the dining room, butler’s pantry, kitchen, and a former cafe off the kitchen, which could easily be converted into a family room. The basement apartment has income potential, or could be an in-law suite or great teen hangout. Cremer House is located an easy distance from numerous local attractions of the Driftless Region, including the Kickapoo Valley Reserve, Wildcat Mountain State Park and the Sparta-Elroy Bike Trail. This house would make a wonderful private home for a family wanting to live in a small town away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a convenient location with only a 45 minute commute to La Crosse and shorter to other area communities.
