Hohmann Farmhouse, c. 1910
This house was probably built by the Hohmann family who bought the property in 1908. An L-shaped 2-story brick house, it is situated near the shopping area not far from Young’s Corner on James Street. The house has a pillared front porch, an offset front door, modernized sliding front window, and a side entrance, which was probably a later addition to accommodate multi-family use.
The house was originally the home of Ferdinand and Katherine Hohmann and their family, German immigrants who began farming when they arrived in the area the early1900s, and soon were selling produce to their neighbors. Hohmann’s Roadside Stand at Young’s Corner eventually grew into a small store, and later became the Red and White Market on James Street - a family-owned business for many years. The last family business was a pizza shop in Hohmann’s Plaza. The business is gone, but the house remains in the Hohmann family today (2006).
