Inscription.  The 1890 Clement Geitner House was one of the first brick dwellings erected in Hickory and is among a small group of surviving double-pile brick houses in Catawba County. It was built by the Geitner family, whose members were leaders of Hickory's industry, commerce, and society. In late summer or fall of 1889, Clement Geitner either moved or demolished the original home on this lot and built the current Geitner home in its place. Today, Jenny's Gifts and Accessories, located in this house, is a perfect shop for home decor, personal care products, gifts, holiday decorations and more.
