Godwin Volney Dorsey House
603 N Wayne Street, Piqua, OH 45356
This Greek Revival style home was built in 1850 by Dr. G. V. Dorsey whose medical practice was housed in the addition which is now an apartment. After Dr. Dorseys death in 1885, his son Walker McCorkle Dorsey and his wife took possession and lived there until their death. The house was then sold to Fritz and Betty Hemmert in 1954. The Hemmerts re-apportioned the 25 rooms and made a second apartment plus the carriage apartment which have their own private entrances on North Street. Laura and Jeff Jackson bought the home from Betty Hemmert in 2001.
