History

David M. Fulmer was a prominent figure in the lumber industry. He and his wife, Lottie, lived in the house until 1903. At that time, it was purchased by Max Sells, a bank president and District Attorney of Florence County, Wisconsin. His wife, Nellie, continued to reside in the house after his death. Following Nellie's death, the house was inherited by their daughter, Verle E. Fulmer. Verle was a circuit court judge and the first woman to be elected to a judgeship in the state.

The house has since been converted into a restaurant, Maxsell's. It was added to the State Register of Historic Places in 2013 and to the National Register of Historic Places the following year.
