1. Karsner-Wilsey House/Office Marker
Inscription. Like it's neighbors this house is 3 story, 3 bay frame dwelling with a rear wing. Standing on a stone foundation, it is covered with weather-boards. Dr. William C. Karsner built this home c. 1884.
He served the people of Chesapeake City and the surrounding countryside until 1914. Dr. Edward H. Wilsey opened his office here in 1915. Notice the close proximity to the neighbors homes and imagine which building was erected first and how? When you look at space between the houses the wood siding appears to be perfect having never been exposed to the elements. A. complete restoration was started in 2003/2004 and completed in 2009 with a new standing seam metal roof. The home is an enjoyable part of one of the busier streets in town.
 
Erected 2009 by Royden & Carey Maloumian. (Marker Number B224.)
