Marvel Brabb House (c. 1873). 372 N. Main St., Romeo, MI.

Marvel I. Brabb(1847-1926), a native of Bruce Twp., established “an enviable reputation in banking circles” as director and later president of the First National Bank in Romeo. His elaborate Italianate residence built by R.F. Odion in 1873 and his extensive gardens and fountains to the south (now destroyed) made the Brabb residence a “showplace” in Romeo for over a generation.
