Wilson-Hansler-Stirtzinger House

This House was built by John Wilson in 1876 of triple brick.  The walls are two feet thick and the floors are made of a mixture of cherry and maple woods. 

The house passed onto the family of Dr. John Hansler, and then to his nephew John Loyal Stirtzinger in 1926.  The house still remains on the property owned by descendants of Stirtzinger.  Outside the house, the original Hansler carriage step and one of the hitching posts still stands.
