Herman C. Frieseke House
Herman Frieseke built this house in 1872. The bricks used were from the tile and brick factory that he and his brother, Julius, had opened in 1865 beside the tracks of the Detroit, Grand Haven and Milwaukee Railroad. Herman's son, Frederick Carl, who became a painter of the French Impressionist School, was born on April 7, 1874, and spent his childhood in this house. He died in France in 1939. One of his paintings, "Lady with a Sunshade," dedicated to the memory of his grandmother, Valetta Gould Graham, hangs in the Owosso Public Library.
