My gratitude goes out to Jo Ann Oxsen who sent me a little bit of the history of the old Victorian-style Helling homestead on Second Street (by Pittsburgh Circle). The house was built by her great grandparents Charles and Anna Helling and where her father, Harry C. Miller, was born on the twentysixth of April in 1906. She also shared that when she was a child, her great uncle, “Uncle Doc” (Dr. H.E. Helling) owned the house.
As for the house itself, she only remembered being inside it only once or twice but she did recall it having a fireplace on each of its three floors. I know I am not the only one that would enjoy hearing any memories you may have of the beautiful Victorian-style house. Please share your memories below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
