Built for Cyrus C. Warren in 1909, this house is significant for its historic association with the lumber industry which flourished in Jackson. Designed by prominent Chicago architects Spencer & Powers, the house features an unusual combination of Colonial Revival moldings and mantels and Mission-style built-in benches. The carriage barn is an apparently rare survivor of what was once a common adjunct to the turn-of-the-century house in Jackson. Noteworthy also are the remains of landscaping designed in 1922 by the St. Louis firm of Muskopf & Irish. In the 1950s, it was the home of William J. Simmons, founder of the White Citizens Council of Jackson.
