This home was built in about 1872 by Aurelius H. Gibson. Mr. Gibson was in the timber and barrel stave business. He lived most of his life here with the exception of a few years spent in Arkansas where he built a second barrel stave business. He returned to Madison and died here in 1931. The home is of the grand Victorian style and sits high atop Michigan Hill overlooking the Ohio River. The exterior of the home is red brick adorned with a metal capped roof and ornamented with white stone. In the interior, each room boasts a different wood trim with solid cherry doors. It remained in the Gibson family until about 1930. The Robert Yunker family bought the home in the 1930s and did extensive remodeling to the home in 1949. The Yunker family owned it for many years and later the Hines family took possession of the property. Picture taken 1930s.
