From the 1920s through the 1950s, the John Fendel family owned the home. The Fendels were dog breeders who often placed ads in the local paper for pugs, terriers, chihuahuas, and their specialty – pomeranians. John was 23 when he married 19-year-old Mildred Marie Ausbrook. The couple had one son, Jack. John’s main mode of employment was as a credit manager at a furniture store. In fact, John’s father was the owner of an Evansville hotel, the Old Spencer House, which was sold and became the Ortmeyer Furniture Company where John was employed.
