1911 "currently unknown" home in Glendale
If you know where it is (or, more probably, where it was), email me here
I think it might be the Proctor house. As I recall the driveway was similiar and the building to the right in the back is where the autos were housed. I left Glendale in 1950 so this is just my thoughts.
Ralph Hoop Comments:
There is a fairly good chance this is a house built by William Moores and later improved by Thomas Jefferson Haldeman, whose picture now hangs on the back wall of the Council Chamber.
Captain Haldeman was a riverboat captain who came to Glendale in 1867 and moved into a large house on Sharon Avenue with property that included the entire village block bounded by Sharon, Willow, Fountain and Laurel Avenues. Capt. Haldeman purchased a paper company in Lockland about 1868 and was elected Mayor of Glendale in 1874. He died after only a few months in office. The Captain’s wife, Sarah, lived until about 1891. (Note the description of the Haldeman House in the attached essay by Blanche Richardson Loveland, 1866-1952.)
Blanche Richardson’s grandfather was Captain Thomas J. Haldeman, a riverboat captain who came to Glendale in 1867 and moved into a large house on Sharon Avenue with property which included the entire village block bounded by Sharon, Willow, Fountain and Laurel Avenues.
Teetor describes (the Haldeman) house (now moved into oblivion) thus: “On
Sharon Avenue extending quite from Laurel to Willow Avenue but fronting on
Laurel, is the residence of Capt. T. J. Haldeman, one of the best in
Glendale. The house was originally erected by Wm. B. Moores, but has been
greatly improved by the Captain since he came here in 1867. The building
is a large, two-story well-finished brick edifice, with verandas embracing
both the east and west fronts. The Captain has spacious grounds, a fine
view, beautiful lawn, and fine graveled drives.”
