Darius B. Moon, prominent turn-of-the century Lansing architect, designed this Queen
Anne house in 1896 for Chester E. Woodbury, founder of the Lansing Capitol Savings
and Loan Association. The structure's last residential owner was William G. Kerns, who
owned the Kerns Hotel, which stood in North Grand Avenue. Kerns' family sold the house
to Michigan State Medical Society in 1951. Extensively remodeled in 1951, the house is
one of the few remaining structures designed by Moon. It became the State headquarters
of the Michigan Democratic Party in 1977.
