809 Henderson

This Folk Victorian ell wing cottage with an altered roofline was probably built in about 1893 by Ferdinand Wottrich, a German immigrant and a tailor.  His brother Herman Wottrich was also a tailor and lived at 1907 Decatur.  Both brothers died in 1911.  Ferdinand's widow continued to live at 809 Henderson until about 1913.  The house has been a rental property since then.
