Faculty Lane House 2

In 1905 Concordia College requested and received the Synod’s approval and funding to build this house for $3,000.00. Construction was completed by 1908.

The original location is in the area of the Weller Hall. The house was moved to its Faculty Lane location in the early 1920s to make space for Weller Hall, which was built in 1924.

This house was occupied by the family of Professor Schuelke from 1908 to [year?].

It was occupied by the family of Karl Haase from 1930 to 1942.

It was occupied by the family of Henry Werling from 1943 to 1955.

It was occupied by the family of Luther Schwich from 1956 to 1958.

It was occupied by the family of Edward Hackmann from [1958?] to [year?].

To make space for the new Music Building, the house was moved to 326 East Moffitt Street in 1964, where it was used as a dormitory until [year?].

As you looked at the house from Faculty Lane, the house's front porch was on the right (east) side and the garage was on the left (west) side. There was one garage building that provided the garage for this second house and for the third house.

Dan Schwich remembers that there were grape vines between the first and second houses.
