Sometimes a house is more than a home, like these historic houses in Saginaw county, they have their own facebook page. some pages are more active than others but here is a list of houses with pages.
Built in 1893 by Frank J. Wolfarth, he owned and operated the largest steam bakery north of Detroit. you can find the facebook page HERE

The Hill House
The Hill house on Jefferson was recently purchased and the new owners have been working on it, I think this page was started before the new owners but I am including it anyways, you can find it HERE
George M. Nason “Heritage” House
The Nason house in Chesaning became the Heritage House Restaurant but closed several years ago, I found this unofficial page HERE to keep up with what happening with it. I also have a post for my Michigan Historical Marker Series at LostinMichigan.net HERE
Charles Lee ” The Cat Lady” House
The Cat Ladies house is probably the most well know house in Saginaw, there was a page started when it was rumored the city was going to demolish it. the page has not been updated frequently but I suspect when the demolition rumors start again the page will become really active. You can find the page on facebook HERE. I also wrote about the history of the house HERE

Richard C. Burtis “Wedding Cake” House
This house for my LostInMichigan.net website near Watrousville in Tuscola county, but I like their page so I am adding it to the list. Richard C. Burtis built this second empire house in 1879. Because of it’s ornate decoration it was referred to as “The Wedding Cake House”. A newlywed couple purchased the house after serving in the military, you can follow their efforts to restore the home on the facebook page HERE.
