1916 Kane

Built in about 1889 as a tenant house by James Openshaw, a machinist who lived next door at 1920 Kane, it once exhibited a more Victorian appearance with a steeply pitched roof and ornate front porch.  In 1894 it was purchased by Charles Telschow, a saloon keeper and bartender whose parents lived down the street at 1816 Kane.  Sometime in the early 1920’s he had the roof rebuilt to a more modern bungalow style.  His son John Telschow lived in the house until the early 1930's.
