Notes
Survey number HABS IN-103
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-64).
Significance: The Lantz House was built ca. 1830-35 and is one of the oldest examples of late Federal architecture adapted to the local "Centerville Arch" style. This style evolved when National Road (U.S. 40) was narrowed from 100 to 65 feet. New facades were added to the original structures and archways leading to the older sections were constructed. Daniel Lantz, the original owner, was one of the first wagon makers in Centerville. The house remained in the family for nearly a century until 1927.
