Not for profit company Preserving Galion History, LLC has begun it's planned projects to paint at least half of the exterior of the massive home and also restore the heating and cooling system.

The home was constructed in 1908 by Bloomer and Nellie Gill with plans from famed architect Louis Kamper who also designed several homes in the Detroit area, including the Book Cadillac Hotel.

Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone were all said to have visited the Gill House.

Tours of the Gill House are available the first and third Saturday's of the summer months for $5. Work days for restoration take place the second and fourth Saturday's of the summer.
