Tonawanda in Erie County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Louis P.A. Eberhardt Home
Kenmore's founder, Louis Phillip Adolph
Eberhardt built this home in 1893-94
and occupied it until 1918 when it was
acquired by the YWCA. This brownstone
home and its twin, built by LPA's brother
Fred, cost $150,000 each. They are
examples of the kind of homes planned
for this pioneer suburb during its first
decade, 1889-99. LPA's real estate office
was the small building across Delaware.
