In the 1910s to the 1930s, Archibald Casteel owned this house. He lived here with his wife Clara, aka Carrie, until she died in the 1920s. The couple had a son Carl. Per the 1930 US Census, a live-in housekeeper then shared the home and the property was valued at $12,000 that year.
Archibald owned his own brick and sand business known as A. Casteel & Co. In 1906, he sued the Canton-Akron Railway Company for nonpayment of work performed on the Meyers Lake Theatre building. Casteel also made the news in a case that took a couple of years to resolve involving his purchase of a buggy that was fraudulently sold to him by a boy, Jessie Miller, who did not own the buggy. Ultimately, Miller was ordered to pay Casteel $200 in damages.
In a final note, in 1900 Archibald made headlines when he saved a woman’s life as she was attempting to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge.
