What Should Happen to the Wilcox House in Plymouth?
Visions for Vacancies: Developments have stalled at iconic Plymouth house, but what would you like to see?
Overlooking Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth, the iconic Wilcox House commands attention from passersby with its incredible history, yet has remained empty for years.
Built in 1901 by William F. Markham, president of the King Air Rifle Company during Plymouth's heyday as arguably the air-rifle capital of the U.S., the house was sold to Plymouth icons George and Harriet Wilcox in 1911.
In recent decades, however, condominium projects and other development plans have failed to materialize and the house has stood vacant.
Still, it could be argued the house has aged gracefully and still has untapped potential if the right idea comes along.
So, what would you like to see here?
Be sure to tell us in the comments what you'd like to see happen to the Wilcox House. It surely is an important part of Plymouth's history.
