524 N. Bever St., Wooster, Ohio
The house located at 524 N. Bever St. was likely built sometime between 1883 and 1890 by property owner Weston Peckinpaugh. It was added to the Wayne County Landmark Registry by the Wayne County Historical Society of Ohio as the Williams House and awarded the status of a "Pioneer House" in 1976 and was marked with a plaque.
Architecturally the house displays elements of both Gothic and Stick styles. Wall are sheathed with wood clapboards. The gable is adorned with decorative scrollwork attached under the eaves. The facade below the front gable has board-and-batten type siding, as does the decorative gable on the front porch.--Information provided by Historic Founders' Row Association
