Exterior alterations of this Queen Anne Victorian home for sale in Sebring, Ohio, have sucked out much of its original charm, but the interior character remains mostly intact. Sometimes when there is not a photo of the kitchen, it is because that room is outdated, but we prefer it that way at OHU50K. Let’s hope it’s vintage. How do you feel about the house sitting next door to the public library. Personally, it’s a selling point for me.

Family History

From my sleuthing it appears this was the home of widower Edwin Louthan,  a medical doctor with his own private practice out of this home. In 1940, he lived here with his adult son, Robert, a machinist at the auto factory, his married daughter Marian LaFrance, son-in-law Charles, a salesman at the electrical company, and young grandson Charles Junior. The home was valued at $4,000 in 1940.

Town History

According to the Sebring Historical Society:

Sebring, Ohio, was founded by the Sebring family from East Liverpool. They owned and operated many pottery businesses. The Sebring family dreamed of building their own pottery town that would stand as a memorial to their work and ideals. They decided upon an area in Mahoning County, 80 miles west of Pittsburgh and five miles east of Alliance. They chose 200 acres of farmland near the Mahoning River that was near a railroad line. Later, a 160-acre tract was added. Articles of Incorporation were filed in 1899.

In April, 1898, work began on the factories, stores and homes that would become known as “Sebring.” The Sebring brothers, their parents (George and Elizabeth), and their sisters each built beautiful homes. These potteries at one time employed approximately 3,300 workers. The Sebring pottery industry flourished for many years. At one time Sebring was known as the “Pottery Capital of The World.” From these beginnings Sebring has remained a small town. Although only a few pottery “decorating” firms still remain, other types of manufacturers have located here.
