‘Seldom-seen’ tour planned for Sept. 7

August 27, 2012
The Times Observer

Take a guided tour of the fascinating architecture and history of the Struthers-Wetmore-Schimmelfeng House on Friday, Sept. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. Now the home of the Warren County Historical Society, this lovely house was built between 1870 and 1873 and became the home of Anna Struthers and George Wetmore until their early deaths in 1880 and 1890 respectively. Their only living son Tommy also died young in 1894 but he had rented the house out by that time. In 1893 the owner of the Stoneham Tannery, Charles Schimmelfeng, bought the house for his family and made some changes which included adding electricity, installing new fireplace mantles, and re-covering some walls with a material made to look like leather.
