Circa 1900 Fixer Upper in Oil City, PA $16K

OHU50K Notes $16,000

This sweet old fixer upper sits high in the hills above the Allegheny River in Oil City, Pennsylvania. This area south of the river was one of the first to be platted in the city which had its heyday as a thriving petroleum producing area through the later half of the 19th century and into the 20th century. By the 1990s, however, Pennzoil, Quaker State, and Wolf’s Head had all relocated their headquarters elsewhere, putting the city into a decline.

Family History

Silas Albert Buzzard 1894-1970), a train conductor, lived here with his wife, Lena Schwartz Buzzard (1899-1986). The couple married in 1918 and had five children, Lloyd, Silas, Robert, Virginia and Lena.  Sadly, Llyod and Silas died in infancy. In 1948, the fire department was called to the home, but it proved to be only soot burning in the chimney with no damage.
