Inscription.  This Saltbox style farm house was built about 1815 in West Millcreek, south of Wheaton Rd. (later Knobloch Rd. now W. 38th St.), on land owned by Irish immigrant John Nicholson (1764-1828) who came to Erie County in 1797. House was owned for a time by John Wheaton family. For over 150 years, it was owned by Louis von Buseck (1812-1893) and descendants. Louis was born Ludwig Heinrich von Buseck in Germany, the second son of Baron Carl Phillip von Buseck. Unoccupied for decades, house was dismantled 2013 at original site (5031 W. 38th St.) and rebuilt here in 2018.
