    Such a nice house, and so affordable. I want the stained glass lamp and ball and stick table that is shown next to a fireplace. Check out the dollhouse across the street.

    A sweet family home, and very little to do or complain about! Built for druggist Adam Mutz (1828-1899), who lived here briefly with wife Martha and their family. The house was burgundy 30 years ago, then painted white before the current period colors.

        Thanks Julie. The sources depend on location and time period. This one had references in the NRHP nomination for the South Walnut Street Historic District and the Indiana SHAARD database, and local blurbs also. All the Indiana Sanborn Maps are online too. I always check the genealogy to identify people with dates as well.
        Since you brought me back to it, I’ll mention that the 1896 build date is questionable. The NRHP info says after 1893, and supposedly there’s a photo from 1896. The Sanborn Maps of 1892 and 1899 clearly show a different footprint than the present house, which was either built from scratch or substantially modified after 1899. The various details seem to range from about 1890 to 1910ish, so it’s hard to know what happened without really getting into it.

    Some may remember this Edinburgh house which sold for a song a couple of years back. It was HUGELY popular on OHD, but was lost in the purge. One listing still has pix, including at least a couple of the RAD kitchen! Damn purge.


    This fantastic National Period house was on OHD as well.
