Samuel M Allison House




328 N Downing Street, Piqua, OH 45356


Tracy and Joe Thobe



This Tudor style home was built in 1889 for Frances and Samuel M. Allison. Samuel was the General Manager of the Cron-Kills Furniture Company. The home retains a number of its original features. Throughout the main floor quarter-sawn oak is featured in all the wood work. This technique creates a beautiful distinctive grain, usually used in high end application, known as Tiger Oak. The main entry welcomes visitors with a built in bench and mirror above adorned with brass coat hooks. Upon entering
the living room, the opening is flanked by seven foot Doric columns. Three fireplaces with unique surrounds are in the living room, dining room and master bedroom. Double pocket doors can be found between the living and dining rooms. Two more single pocket doors are off of the hallway into the dining room and TV room. There is a butlers pantry situated between the dining room and kitchen complete with swinging door. The hard wood flooring throughout the entire house is laid in a picture frame pattern. When the Thobes’ moved in, a large portion of the woodwork had been painted white and the pocket doors closed up and they have since stripped and restored all to its natural finish.
