The Ashland County Recorder’s office shows that J.S and
Sarah K Wertman owned this property between 1881 and 1885.
The value of the property between those years jumped from $200
to $2,800, leading one to believe the house was built in the early
1800’s. The Wertmans didn’t stay at 622 Grant Street long, as Daniel
Carter purchased the home in 1885. This Victorian vernacular has a
spectacular front porch, complete with gingerbread. The long
windows with decorative trim are characteristic of the era.
Located between the home and the carriage house is a
carefully manicured formal garden. Stone walkways divide the
sections and benches allow people to sit and take in this garden,
fitting for a Victorian home.
