Looking Back: The Baumgartner House

Source: Alan Naldrett, Fraser Historical Society

Gracing the corner of Masonic Street and Kelly Street since 1875, the Baumgartner House was built and named for John Christian Baumgartner (1828-1905).  He and his wife, Samantha, raised their family of six sons and two daughters in the house. After the Baumgartner family, the house went through many owners. It was painted white in the 1940s, as illustrated by the picture.  In 1981, it was purchased by the City of Fraser and now serves as a community museum maintained by the Fraser Historical Commission and Fraser Historical Society.
