First Home Built in This Part of Town


Grace Sulzer in front of her home at 4223 N. Greenview, the first house built in that neighborhhod.
You may recognize the Sulzer family name from Conrad Sulzer. In 1837, Conrad Sulzer of Winterthur, Z├╝rich, Switzerland, became the first white settler to live in the area. The Sulzer Regional Library, which houses the Northside Neighborhood History Collection, was named for him.

Beautiful photo! That is in Graceland West, and I don't think it's considered part of the Hutchinson historic district.

Oops, you're right. Wrong side of the cemetery.
