Abandoned Towered Victorian House.

This house is located in Napoleon, Ohio. I wish that its original owner would’nt be upset.

“I glimpsed this towered Victorian house from nearby Rt 6 and made my way around the block to check it out. I was able to track down the owner who let me take some pictures and gave me a little history. It was purchased by Victor and Minnie Orwig in 1903 and was occupied until the mid Nineties. The original slate roof is beginning to fail, endangering the upstairs ceilings. An unusual farmhouse for this turn of the century Ohio farming community. The detailing and woodwork on this house were a little different from anything I have ever seen and looked like they might have been an individual’s interpretation of popular motifs.”
