The original frame house where John Hanson was born burned on July 25, 1934. This house, begun in 1938 and completed by 1950, replaced it. "Built on the same foundations, the existing structure follows the same basic configuration of the earlier house that is believed to have been built by John Hanson, Jr. shortly after his purchase of the property in 1744." -- MDHT. Dr. Edward J. Edelen and his wife Lexy Edelen moved-in in 1953. According to Herbert J. Stoeckel, "Old materials were used almost exclusively by the Edelens in rebuilding John Hanson's birthplace. Into Hanson House went bricks and woodwork from the Bates-Lincoln House [formerly at 1775 N Street, N.W.] in Washington, demolished in 1950." The house is currently up for sale.
