This substantial home was built for the Zabel family in 1931 (note a reversal of the last two digits in the inventory sheet, resulting in an incorrect date of 1913 in other documents referring to this building). It is a beautifully maintained and unusual brick English Revival home. The Zabels owned several movie theaters downtown, including the Capitol, Rex, and Ray.
