Historical Feature

Overview

No votes yet

In the period 1890 - 1894, two neighboring Victorian cottages were built on Hooper Avenue and presented as gifts to his daughters by a generous father. both houses overlooked the amphitheater site. They are similar family-size houses, three stories tall, with wrap-around front porches on the first floor. But their layouts, roof styles and window placements are different.

When Bertha Strauss and her husband spent their first summer in this new house, the clapboard siding around the first floor was pointed rose with cream trim, and natural shingles covered the second floor walls. Today the structure and exterior finishes remain much as they were then. Inside, much original wood paneling remains, though since painted white. The original water well is still under the kitchen porch.
