1891 Queen Anne Victorian
Gerry Thone and Michel Taylor
In 2001, while on the Home Tour, I came across this beautiful, Victorian, Queen Anne home for sale. A short time later I owned it. It was built in 1891 by Augustus Gauger, a nationally renowned architect who also designed the Stutzman Block at 727-731 E. 7th St. I have done much restoring and decorating with emphasis on historical accuracy while maintaining functionality. Many of the original details still remain. The exterior showcases a tower with arched “eyebrow” windows. A newel post has on it ornately carved initials of the original owners, Otto Muller and his wife, Marie Hamm, daughter of the famed Hamm’s brewing family. Framing the entrance are two intricate stained glass windows. The interior features sliding pocket doors, tiled fireplace with a carved mantel, elaborate parquet floors, and original woodwork throughout.
