City Directories and History: 1958 and 1966 – Ralph W. Wiley
A magnificent house, circa 1900’s was built by the Stroup family in the Colonial Revival style. The house includes many outstanding architectural features; include high-columned and mirrored mantels with over mantels. Of prominence is the entry hall, which boasts an unusually large centered staircase with matching side hallways and ornate hand-cut latticework which graces the ceilings. A second rear “service” staircase features beautifully detailed banisters and rails. The large, columned front porch and the flower house in the front yard are framed by white block walls and iron gates. [Courtesy of the Yorkville Historical Society – 2002]
*** One member of the Wiley family who owned the property from the 1940’s until circa 2008, stated the house was built in 1905.
