Daniel Wild House


Cedar Falls
501 West First Street

Daniel Wild operated a lumber and brickyard in Cedar Falls at 324 State Street. Wild's brick factory and kiln were located just west of this house, built for him by W.A. Robinson. The Wild House is an elaborate example of the Queen Anne style of architecture. It features an unusual gable arrangement, ridgeline decoration, a wide range of texture changes in the siding, square porch columns and a peculiar window that completes a steeply tripped gable.

Wild needed such a large house because his family included five boys and four girls. Three of his sons later owned the Leader Shoe Store, now the Miller Shoe Company at 319 Main Street.
