Charles and Jane Barthold Home

Add to plan Remove from plan

Dry Goods merchant Charles Barthold commissioned the construction of this Greek Revival style house prior to his family’s arrival in the city. It features a large porch with boxed columns , elongated windows, and an upper story which was a later addition. Mrs. Barthold was an artist whose pictures, tapestries and wood-burnings enhanced many residences. Her artistic talent extended to her front yard. It was a showplace filled with rare flowers, garden figures and flowerbeds outlined in colorful glass bottles. Two garden ornaments which Mrs. Barthold created can be seen in the front yard today. Edie Simmons Carter, a granddaughter, occupied the home until her death in 1990.
