Eleven Habersham Street was completed in 1852 after Mr. John H Strous purchased lots 13 and 14, Warren Ward, in October of 1850 from Patrick Duffy. By December of 1852, the building was operating as, “Mr. Strous’s Bar Room”, which was likely located in the basement. The upstairs appears to always have been used for residential rooms. This parcel has been held by the same family for over 100 years! Come and write the next chapter of this intriguing story. The listing agent owns part of the LLC that owns 11 Habersham Street.
