The historic R.D. Hubbard House is one of the finest examples of the classic Victorian architecture to grace South Broad Street where numerous captains of industry resided. The Hubbard House survives in its original form, having been occupied by only the Hubbard family and the Blue Earth County Historical Society.
R.D. Hubbard-entrepreneur and founder of Hubbard Milling Company, which was the largest flour mill in southern Minnesota, built his house in three stages: 1871, 1888 and 1905. The family occupied the house until 1938 when purchased by the Historical Society. A quarter of the displayed furniture once belonged to the Hubbard family; the remainder of the furnishings and furniture date to the early 1900s.
