Comprehensive History

Originally located on the grounds of Wooster High School on Bowman Street, this house served as living quarters for the high school janitor. When, in 1917, the Wooster Board of Educational Services decided that the increased city population meant a new grade school needed to be constructed, the Little Old House was sold to the current janitor, Thomas Ammon, who had it relocated to North Walnut Street, where it remains.[1]
