Yost-Hoover-Finch House

Built in 1914 by German immigrant, Frederick A. Yost, and his American-born wife, Anna Hass-Yost. Designed in the American Foursquare style, this 1,700 square foot house features three bedrooms and a large full bathroom on the second floor, the first floor features a vestibule front entrance, large living room running the length of the front the house, living room fire place, formal dining room and kitchen with small powder room on the first floor.

The first occupants of the house were Frederick and Anna Yost, and their daughter Edith. Mr. and Mrs. Yost were already middle-aged by the time they built the house in 1914. The Yost’s moved into the house with their youngest child, 15-year-old Edith, in 1914. Mr. and Mrs. Yost had two older children as well; oldest son Carl who died in 1900 at the age of 15, and middle child Francis, who was 26 years old in 1914 when this house was built. Frederick and Anna Yost remained in the house for the remainder of their lives; Frederick died in 1940, and Anna died in 1945. Following Anna’s death in 1945, daughter Edith continued to live in the house, along with her live-in nurse. Edith died in 1954, unmarried and childless.

In 1954 the house was sold to young newly-weds, Floyd and Violet Hoover. The Hoovers lived in the house for 20 years, and raised their children here. The Hoovers sold the house in the mid-1970’s, and retired to suburban Maryland.

For a brief period of time, from the mid-1970’s into the early 1980’s the house was the residence of Paul and Barbara Finch and their children. The Finch Family sold the house in 1984.

The house still stands; and remains in private residential ownership.
