This frame house, located in Hastings, was built about 1884 for William Brach in a simplified Queen Anne style and was remodeled shortly after 1900 incorporating Neo-Classical Revival elements. The original porch was replaced with classically-styled columns and balustrade. William Brach, a native of Germany, settled in Hastings in the late 1870s. He was president of Wolbach and Brach, a prosperous dry goods and department store.
