The Bunnel House is a Gothic Revival structure that was built in the 1850’s. It was said to be based on the design of Jackson Downing whose designs were very popular in the mid 1800’s. He believed that houses should blend well with the landscape.

The Bunnel House illustrates this description as its “outlines are highly picturesque and harmonious with nature. This residence was occupied by a number of families prior to being acquired by the Winona County Historical Society.

The Bunnel family who occupied it is composed of Willard Bradley Bunnel, who named the town Homer after his birthplace, and his wife, Matilda Desnoyer, and their children.

Today, very few of the original furnishings by the Brunnel family are displayed in the house. It is open from Wednesday to Saturday and on Sundays from June to August.
