Civil War veteran James Allison "Cap" Colehour built the historic Prospect House, an 18-room Georgian-style home, in 1882. The Battle Lake, Minnesota, home boasts treasures from its early days as the area's first tourist hotel and its later life as a family home. It was lavishly remodeled in 1929 and looks much today as it did then. The Prospect House became a museum in 2010. In 2013, the Prospect House was listed on the National Register for Historic Places.
