Fletcher House Revisited
This is the porch at the Fletcher House, which I posted about last May. Dr. H.C. Fletcher built this home in 1890, where he cared for TB patients in the house, as well as in smaller buildings on the property.
The second family to occupy the home was the Henszeys, whose son Thomas married Julia Carter, daughter of city founder N.C. Carter. Thomas and Julia Henszey lived in their own home in Sierra Madre (which I have not yet located). Thomas passed away in 1925, while Julia lived until 1965. Both are buried in the Sierra Madre Cemetery.
The Fletcher House has a rich history, including several families. It is obvious that the current family loves the home and is caring for it beautifully.
