Platt C. "Tip" Wilder Residence, at 346 South Montezuma, corner of Montezuma and Aubrey Streets.

Platt Clayton "Tip" Wilder was a cattleman from Yavapai County who became wealthy during the 1880s by supplying beef to the territory's rapidly growing population. Although he owned ranches at Anvil Rock and Camp Wood, Wilder needed a residence close to the business activity which he contracted for and more immediate to the social amenities he desired. Accordingly he had a home built for himself on South Montezuma in the spring of 1891. By its use of shingled surfaces, oriel windows, half timbering, and asymmetrical massing the building deserves to be classed in Queen Anne style. However, the overall impression is rather eccentric.
