Maigne-Walther House

1869. 904 Live Oak St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

A classical parapet gives this modest one-story, five-bay, central-hall-plan cottage a stately, formal appearance. Charles Maigne built the house and after several subsequent owners it was purchased in 1910 by R. H. Walther, a local merchant and civil servant.

The Bartles-Wirtz House (1886) at 1216 Live Oak Street is another one-story, five-bay, side-gabled house with Gothic Revival bargeboards in the intersecting central gable. Anton Bartles came to Columbus from Alden-burg, Germany, in 1869 and served as city alderman.
