The W. H. Faling House is a historic house located at 606 Parker St. in Cambridge, Nebraska. The house was constructed in 1909 by Nebraska architect W. F. Gernandt. The home's Neoclassical design features a full height porch with groups of banded columns and a wide front door with symmetrical lights on the sides; the home is considered the best representation of Neoclassical architecture in Cambridge. W. H. Faling, a local merchant and the first chairman of Cambridge, owned and occupied the house until his death in 1933. The house now functions as a bed and breakfast.[2]
