Stevens Point - Orrin Briggs & Matthew Wadleigh house

Hello

I am looking for more information about this house which was originally built in 1856 in Stevens Point. It was moved in 1908 from 704 Main Street (block between Smith and Prentice Street at that time) to 1516, 1516A, 1524 College Ave.

I would love to know
a) if this house is still standing
b) whether privately owned
c) additional information exists about the owners

I know that both Orrin BRIGGS (my 4x great grandfather) and Matthew Wadleigh were both lumbermen. Orrin owned a mill in the 1840s but moved away, next appearing in Missouri. I know he was born about 1797 in Mass or Maine, but trying to find birthplace and parents names.

Any suggestions or kinds souls living in Stevens Point out there?

Thanks
Lisa
