Charles B. Leach Mansion/Garfield Heights
This High Victorian Queen Anne style home was built in 1887 for lumbar baron Charles B. Leach.
The current owners, Michael G. Ohlson, Sr. and Kent T. Dicus, purchased the house in 2003.
Harvey A. Brower Residence
Current owners, Cisse Spragins & Sean O'Toole
This home is Italian Renaissance Revival which was popular throughout the United States in the early part of the last century. It was built for retired umber man Harvey A. Brower who passed away before its completion in 1910. His widow and two daughter-both married to doctors, moved in upon it's completion.
Walls are three courses of bricks thick-14 inches.
The current owners are very active in the Scarritt Renaissance Neighborhood and estimate that their restorative work is about 30% complete. The home used to have a porch on the front... and plans are for that to be restored.
The latest part of the house to be restored is the dining room, above and below.
