NOTES
Additional Information:A 'site file' exists for this property. It contains additional information such as correspondence, newspaper clippings, or historical information. It is a public record and may be viewed in person at the State Historical Society, Division of Historic Preservation. This frame Italianate house is asymmetrical in plan. Brackets mark the eave line, wood strips create decorative diamond patterns on side walls and dormers. This is one of the few Italianate designs in Oshkosh which breaks from the contained rectangular plan. The roof line is broken by dormers and a projection which is perhaps the remnant of a tower. The residence is sited on a point of land at the intersection of New York Avenue and High Avenue. The elongated plan of this frame residence is particularly well suited to the site.

Martin Anthes, a mill hand at Paine Lumber, is the first recorded resident at this location. Louis Schneider once lived here as well.
