Ownership history

In 1907 Henry and Margaret Pfauhl purchased the lot at 2238 E. Fifth Street from Edward and Nattie Boyer who owned the house next door at 2234 E. Fifth Street and in 1908 constructed this beautiful home. The Pfauhls resided here until 1917 when the house was sold to Edward U Kemp and Eugene Wicks. The home quickly changed hands when three years later the home was sold to George and Marie J Will and then May 25, 1923 it was bought by Catherine and Christian Koerner, a self employed painting contractor. The home stayed in the Koerner family for many years. After Catherine and Christian passed away the home was taken over by their son Norman who worked at Huffman Mfg. Norman died January 4, 1957. After his death the home was purchased by Floyd A and Louise O. Chandler who on December 13, 1965 sold the home to William and Glenna Bruce.

The house was bought and sold many times, turned into a double, abused, mistreated and brought to a state of total disrepair until in 1996 it was purchased by Albert Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds along with his wife, Vicky renovated the home from top to bottom. The electrical, plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, windows, bathrooms kitchen flooring and more have been replaced and/or repaired in this 2300 sq. ft. house. The third floor was finished to include a large 17 x 16 bedroom and full bath. The second floor has a full laundry room, large bath room with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, 25 x 14 master bedroom 15 x 9 third bathroom. The home sits on a large double lot with a privacy fence. It has all the conveniences of the present with the charm of the past.

On January 21, 2005 Susan Roper and Vida Renfrow purchased this fantastic home from Mr. Reynolds. They moved from their small 3 bedroom apartment in Huber Heights and over the past year and a half they’ve worked on decorating and making it their home. Vida, an Interior and Floral Designer has done a beautiful job with finding the right furnishings, colors and décor to make this home shine. Albert Reynolds has stayed in their lives and the life of this home working as a handy man helping with painting, repairs and improvements.
