I can’t pass up a house with original woodwork, especially one for which I can find some historical background.

This is The Hess House. The Samuel J. Hess House, not to be confused with The William B. Hess House across the street at #303. Perhaps brothers?

Samuel (b.1856), a dry goods merchant, built this home in 1890 and resided here with his wife Anna and daughters May and Hazel. By the 1920 US Census, only Anna (now a widow) and 23-year-old Hazel were living in the home. May apparently had married and formed a new household.

According to the 1940 US Census, Anna still resided at #302, along with Hazel, her husband, John E. Youngmeyer, a jewelry dealer, and their 10-year-old daughter, Bardace.
