While the main house is basically Neo-Classical revival, the large, wraparound porch is a Victorian carry over. Craftsman and Prairie elements are also evident. The interior of the house contains murals by German-born artist Gustaf Fuchs. The house was built for Dr. Elmer Porter, a prominent Omaha physician who reportedly had the largest medical practice in the city in the early 1900's. Later the house was owned by Arthur C. Thomsen, a district court judge.
