1889 Victorian

Our Old Victorian

"The abstract for our house dates back to July 15, 1856, when the land was originally granted from the United States government to John Courier. Between the years of 1856 & 1888, the land changed hands several times. On December 28, 1888, the land was purchased by John Schwartz for $1500.00.

We think the actual house was built in 1889 because we located a note in Sioux City Journal dating April 14, 1889. It states that “John Schwartz is preparing to build a $3000 residence at Morning Side.” The area of town that we live in is known as Morningside and the big housing boom began in the early 1890s.

Through some genealogy research, we believe that John Schwartz was born in 1831 in Pennsylvania. His wife, Charlotte P., was born in 1833 in Ohio. We think they had 4 children; C.G. (son), born in 1852, Emma A. (daughter), born in 1859, Ella M. (daughter), born in 1866, and Ivie W. (son), born in 1872."~
