The home was the site of the then-oldest running Bach Society and even an astronomy-oriented society. “It was the oldest-running Bach Society in the world at the time,” said Marietta Councilman Harley Noland. “(Lillian) played a pipe organ at it. Her father opened the meetings, even when he was dead; she had a recording of him.”(Submitted on April 27, 2021.)
The home had the first indoor bathroom in the area. “They were the first in 1886 to have plumbing; they have the first bathroom,” Jesse Ada said. “They were a very prominent family and at least one president was here.”
