ca. 1867

This simple brick dwelling was built for Frederick Stang, a Bavarian immigrant and market gardener. His house is one of the last vestiges of these early-day fruit and vegetable farms on the fringes of the city. In 1883, a later owner, Jacob Wirth, also from Germany, enlarged the house substantially. The brick for the house is believed to have come from a brickyard that was located at the west corner of Milwaukee and North Streets and East Washington Avenue.
