OHU50K NOTES

Welcome to Under $100K Sunday.

OHU50K featured this fixer upper back in December, but it is worth another go-round.

The fixer upper in Hartford, Michigan, is a conglomeration of architectural styles. We can see elements of Gothic Revival, Italianate and Second Empire but not Queen Anne as the realtor states. In 1873, it was the home of Daniel Webster Goodenough (1842-1921), his wife Lovena and children Elenor, Luman and Olive Emily. Goodenough was apparently more than good enough as a businessman, as he started his career at the tender age of 13 and was a big success in lumbering, manufacturing, real estate and banking.

According to Find A Grave, “Mr. Goodenough engaged in lumbering, dealing mainly in bark and ties, operated a real estate and loan business, served as secretary of the Ludington Milling Company, and president of the Scottville Hardware Company. He was the only local lumberman known to have owned a private railway coach. He never owned an automobile, but preferred to drive the horse drawn carriage that he owned for over 30 years. Mr. Goodenough preferred the name Daniel Webster rather than his christened name, which was Daniel Washington, because he was a fervent admirer of the Statesman and firebrand Daniel Webster.”
