Title 232 Calhoun Street
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content In 1940, it was reported that this house was an outstanding monument to the Victorian era in architecture, with its cupola, roof angles, and ornate trimmings. The residence at the northwest corner of Calhoun and Smith Streets was to be demolished and replaced by a funueral home to be built by J. Henry Stuhr. The house was said to have been built by Henry Oliver for a cost of about $22,000. One of the finest houses of the period, it contains 14 rooms and a large attic, and had especially fine grille work over the doors. The house was occupied for 38 years by William J. Storen who recalled that the house replaced an earlier brick building which was on the site. He said that when it was first built, it was possible to navigate with boats in Calhoun and Smith and Rutledge when the tide was high.
