Homewood's first official historic landmark, the Dorband Howe House was built by the Gottschalks of "HOMEWOOD" stamped brick. This workingman's cottage is a "significant expression of American architecture and America itself...pure simplicity of style". As the Homewood Historical Society's Museum and Headquarters, the landmark building houses a small library, museum showcases and gift shop selling local landmark mementos.
