Marriott, Yearsley, and Wahl Houses

506-508-510 W. Main Street

Yearsley

These three homes were built in 1892 on property formerly owned by Samuel Busey. Louis Wahl (510 W. Main) was a local saloon owner, while brothers-in-law Emmett Yearsley (508 W. Main, left) and Frank Marriott (506 W. Main) were farmers and real estate speculators. When completed, the Champaign County Herald proudly declared, “On West Main Street are three homes that would do honor to Chicago or any other city.”
