Built in 1876 by Henry Esperson (who never lived there) the home is of the French Second Empire Style.  The French Second Empire style, featuring a characteristic dominant mansard roof, was the rage during the 1870’s.  The Second Empire style, developed in France during the 1850’s, provided a way whereby one could continue the classical tradition of balance and control while presenting a picturesque appearance. The Cargill-Pettibone House is one of the two architecturally significant representatives of the French Second Empire style in the City of La Crosse.
