Comprehensive History

In 1864, Wendell Young (of brewery fame) bought the property at the northeast corner of N. Bever Street and E. Larwill Street from Fredrick and Margaret Schuch. In 1899, the house and property were sold to the surviving Young children -- Ed, Anna, Amelia, and Kate -- by their sister Rosa (Young) Shibley and her husband William. In 1949, Tom and Maude Bryner bought the home, and they in turn sold it in 1957 to Edward and Arline Myers. During the 1950s, the house was extensively remodeled into a duplex. The house was then bought in 1966 by the Cliff Bushnells, and in 1968 it was purchased by W. P. Shank for the purpose of the house's demolition and the construction of a modern apartment building[1].
