Built for his widowed mother in
1885-86 by Edward T Schroeder (son of an original settler, a shopkeeper, and,
later, the postmaster of the quarry community of Bluestone, Ohio in two terms
between 1897 and 1910), this is a charming example of the vernacular
architecture found in farmhouses built by mid-western farmers for themselves.
The original front porch and clapboard have disappeared, but the random-width
pine flooring, irregular kitchen windows, staircase, and "funeral" or
"casket" door are among the original features of the house whose
interior evokes the flavor of the early structure.
