t ! Page 10A The Woodville Republican, Thursday, March 27, 2014 CIVIC CLUB NEW RENOVATION PROJECT -- The Stutzman House at 640 First South Street is described in the National Register listing of 1982 as a "one story, three bay residence with a gable roof' with "six-over-six windows, a corbeled cornice, and a central door with sidelights and transom," and in our Volume III of The Journal of Wilkinson County History, author Stella Pitts reports that it is generally believed to be the second oldest house in Woodville, probably about 1805 or so. It is a solid brick structure with 14 foot ceilings and has its original man- tels. There is no question that it is one of the most important structures in Woodville and entirely worthy of restoration. Preliminary plans call for the stabilization of the structure with a new roof, needed masonry repairs, and the removal of the dete- riorated mid-twentieth century ad- dition on the east side of the house. -- Civic Club Photo W.C.Cuk.

With a new roof and stabilization this structure can be saved. It would be a welcome addition to our historic district. With professional help and a worthwhile WOODVILLE CIVIC CLUB NEWS NEW WCC PROJECrE STUTZMAN BLACKSMITH SHOP & HOME In April of 2008 several members of the Stutzman fam- fly met with David vrfikerson and Emesto Caldeira of the Woodville Civic Club at the South of the Borde; and they agreed to work together and to try and save that property. PRESERVATION IS FOCUS The Civic Club saved the railroad building and its kitch- en building in 1973... and two years later we saved the Afri- can American Museum when the back wall was about to col- lapse. We were about to save the Depot Building but an un- fortunate accident burned it to the ground before we could do anything. Now we have to save the Stutzman House and the Blacksmith Shop. It's compli- cated to got it done but those buildings are worthy candi- dates, and we need to got start- ed. We need your help. The house is dose to two hundred years old.., one of the oldest in Woedville. The blacksmith shop is later. This community is fortunate that so many people are working togother to make this possible. Mrs. Mabel Maryman Clark has provided as with the deed to the property through pay- ment of property taxes, and during the last few years we have had donations of rifle made by most of the descen- dants with whom we have been in contact. It is dear. It is time to got on to the property and stabilize the main house and for us to got busy and prevent the black- smith shop from falling down. It can still be saved and we must do it. HISTORY Sophia Stutzman acquired the property in 1870, and when she died in 1915 she was sur- vived by four sons, Otto, Jacob Gustave, Joseph and Henry Leopold, and each inherited 1/4 interest in the property. exhibit on blacksmiths in 19th cen- tury Woodville, an exhibit of this sort could be open to visitors to see on their own. Several Stutzman heirs have indicated their willingness to donate artifacts they have in their possession which were once in this blacksmith shop. -- Civic Club Photo We know about the descen- dants of Joseph... they contin- ued to live in the property... and we know about the descen- dants of Henry Leopold. We do not know much of anything about Otto, except that it is believed that they end- ed up in Maine, and it appears Jacob Gustave went off to Cali- fornia.., and family members have not been in touch with either branch.
