Imagine yourself sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch of this c.1905 fixer upper brick cottage. I love the arched brick work over the windows. Located in a low-crime neighborhood of older homes, the house offers original woodwork, transoms and hardwood floors. Two doors down is a sister house (see below) that is well-maintained.

Family History

After Charles Dewitte (1877-1968) married Mary Gossens in 1907 they purchased this lovely brick cottage. They raised their two daughters, Margaret and Leona, here on Charles’ meager salary as a fireman for the coal mines.

The sister house at number 522 was owned by Charles’ brother-in-law Joseph Zink, a carpenter for the railroad. He lived in his fine brick house with his wife Julia, daughters Emma, Katherine, Mabel, Louise, son Johnny and elderly father-in-law.
