The Ross House


Ross House c.1909

Ross House c.1909

In 1903, Klauber-Wangenheim bought the Lakeside Store and C. W. Ross was sent to Lakeside to manage it in 1904. Mr. Ross brought with him his wife, Mary Annie, his daughter Josie, and Mrs. Ross' mother, Josephine Mansfield.  They occupied the upper story of the Lakeside Store (over the Meat Market) while they built their house next door, and moved there in 1905. There were only 16 dwellings in town at that time, including the Church, Inn and Lindo Hotel.

This house was later rented to a long-time friend of the Ross family from Massachusetts, Mr. Drinkwater.

The house was remodeled in the 1980s by David Paul.
