1807 Kane

In June 1885 Gustav Wiese, a 22-year old German immigrant and carpenter in the H. & T. C. shops, contracted with A. Bering & Bro. to deliver $203.58 worth of materials for the 1-story Folk Victorian cottage that he built for his 19-year-old bride Miss Dora Feser, a milliner. They married in November and lived the rest of their lives at 1807 Kane. He died in 1922 and she died in 1930. After their deaths the house was rented. A second story was added, probably during the ownership of Mary Elizabeth Willborg from 1943 until 1963. In 1952 city directories begin to describe the house as furnished apartments.
