c. 1895 Victorian: Folk
Built circa 1890 as the Sedden Family homestead. The original size of the property was nearly one acre; in addition to the house the property included a barn and stables. The house sits on a tall foundation and is situated on a hillside, giving the house commanding views. The property was subdivided in the early 1900’s as the surrounding neighborhood developed; the property is presently down to 12,000 square feet. Real estate records indicate the Sedden Family remained in residence in the house until atleast 1915.
By 1920 the house was occupied by the William Edmund Moore Family. Mr. Moore was Chief Accountant for People’s Natural Gas Company. He and his wife, Margaret Elizabeth Furlong-Moore, occupied the house along with their seven children. The house would remain with the Moore Family until 1983.
During this period (1910’s to 1920’s) the surrounding area developed from a rural setting into a fashionable, affluent neighborhood known as Edgewood Park. The growing neighborhood was home to Westinghouse executives, bank presidents and doctors. Today the neighborhood has retained most of the grandeur of the past, with well-preserved Victorians, American-Foursquares and mansions situated in park-like settings along tree-lined streets.
