189 Aberdeen

Address: 189 Aberdeen Rd.

Heritage Status: None
Built: 1931 Builder/Architect: Stephen E. Fancy
Style: Elements of Craftsman Style

Architecture:

  • Elements of the Craftsman Style that are still visible include the building's low pitched roofline with front porch under the extension of the main roof. Also note the pitched dormer in the front of the house. Overhanging eaves and square porch posts have probably been altered with modern changes. 

History:

  • This house was built by Stephen E. Fancy, a carpenter who worked for Acadia Construction Company, in the early 1930's. The house was built with only the best materials (i.e. brass screws and oak floors) and is very sturdy. Stephen was a life member of the IOOF Lodge and had just received his 65 year jewel before passing away in 1986. Stephen and his wife Myrtle, who married in 1918 in New Germany, lived in the home until 1945 when it was bought by Carl and Agnes Mullen.
