Notes
Survey number HABS OH-2343-A
Significance: The WIlliam Hoelscher house is significant historically and architecturally because it exemplifies the early settlement of this region of Ohio by German immigrants in search of fertile farmland. The ethnic origins of the builders are reflected in the construction of their homes and outbuildings. Built circa 1870 of heavy timber frame, the Hoelscher farmhouse remains a good example of vernacular American architecture, despite 1920s alterations, and appears to be a derivative of the "continental" house type. The house was continuously owned and occupied by the Hoelscher family for over 120 years.
