This 1902 Dutch colonial home was built by Wallace E. Allen, the town’s longest serving mayor. The home was owned by only one family and is nearly unchanged from its original configuration. Many of the homes original features are still as they were in 1902. The home is furnished with period antiques throughout.
Events in Bad Axe City history are exhibited throughout the Allen House. Several displays include those of Bad Axe resident and Michigan's 29th Governor, Albert Edson Sleeper, and, United States President Richard M. Nixon's last official public appearance in Bad Axe on April 10, 1974.
