The Wilgus House

This two story brick home, a Federal style structure on the corner of East Third St and Chestnut St, was constructed in 1818 for Lucy Wilgus and her husband.

Her father, Garrett Davis Wilgus, was a building contractor who developed Chestnut Street in 1884 and owned property on East Third Street. Garrett Wilgus died in 1893, and his family subdivided his remaining property from Wilgus to Race Street in 1901.
