Hurkamp House

-A A +A
1853; later porch and additions. 406 Hanover St.

John G. Hurkamp, who owned an iron foundry in town, acquired the house in 1862 and added the iron fence, gate, and porch railings, which are marked with his foundry's name. The threebay house with a side-hall entrance retains, as do all the other houses on this block, its original lot.
