Odiorne home to open soon
- Published: December 21, 2010
Ken and Betheen Struewing and Mike and Fran DeWine purchased the brick home on the corner of Herman and Xenia Avenue a year and a half ago and began refurbishing the historical treasure as they remembered it growing up in the village. Though Struewing’s best guess is that the house was built in the 1850s, his restoration brought the structure back to the 1930s, when it was owned by the Odiorne family, who operated Carr’s Nursery just around the corner on High Street.
The home is close to being finished, and contrary to rumors that some or many of the Dewine family members would be living there, the three-bedroom home is expected to be sold. According to Struewing last week, the owners bought it because they remembered the house fondly and wanted to see it preserved. They plan to hold an open house for the community and prospective buyers at some point soon.
