1. Hinmann House Marker
Inscription.  This home’s architecture reflects the German influence of many of the area’s early structures. Heinrich Hinmann purchased the property in July 1855, and he and his wife Therese (Sickold) raised ten children here. The home dates from 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 1920s. The two-story house is built of load-bearing masonry with a low-sloping roof. Hand-tooled limestone blocks form regular courses and heavy lintels and sills, and square wood columns support a gallery porch with geometric design railings.

The builder of the Hinmann House is unknown but he was believed to be an immigrant stonemason trained in the traditional construction methods of Germany. The house with its two level porches is of the classical revival style. The land where the Hinmann House is located today was once the home to a blacksmith shop and log house built in 1845 by Peter Arnold. In July 1855, Peter Arnold, a blacksmith according to the 1850 census, and his wife Catrina sold Lot 76 to Heinrich Hinmann, another blacksmith, for $550.
