Asa Crook's home was the first two-story, frame house built in 1839 by Whiteside County's first settler. The home was also used as an inn for travelers passing through, church services, schooling, and a Post Office. This original home has been saved, and is being restored by the Prophetstown Area Historical Society. The home had to be moved several hundred feet from the original site, but is still located on land of Asa Crook's original property. It will be open to the public upon completion of the interior.
