Hinmann House

Hinmann HouseThis home's architecture reflects the German influence of many of the areas early structures. Heinrich Hinmann purchased the property in July 1855, and he and his wife Terese raised ten children here.

The home dates form circa 1868 and remained a family residence for more than a century, although Dr. A.J. Hinmann converted interior spaces for his medical practice in the 1920's.
