Historic Homes of Momence
Leon J. Tiffany - 1890
This home on Elm Street was built about 1890 by Leon J. Tiffany.
This interesting Victorian home, complete with eight-sided cupola and turret, was built
about 1890 by Leon J. Tiffany. The house was constructed of "seconds" from the family
brickyard which were hand chipped and laid enamel side into simulate stone – a popular
building material of the Victorian period. A very unusual feature of the interior of the home
is the standard two-person elevator between the first and second floors. The original
carriage house, with its small window for the horse stall, is now in use as a garage.
Josephine Tiffany and her husband Phillip Marcotte lived in the home after the death of her
parents. In the 1970's the home was acquired by Lester DuMontelle family. The current
owners are Steve and Celeste Puglise who bought the home in 2002.
