The Catherine V. Yost Museum and Arts Center is a living museum and a local center for non-performing arts. Construction of the Queen Anne-style home was begun in 1898; situated on the north bank of the Vermilion River, the surrounding flora provide a haven for visiting songbirds and waterfowl. It was built for Z.F. Yost, a Pontiac attorney. His daughter Catherine (1893-1970) studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and traveled and painted in both Europe and the U.S.; most of her original artwork is on display in the Yost House.
