Whitewater Historic Landmarks Guide
This late Italianate house was designed by noted Milwaukee architect, H. C. Koch and built for G. W. Esterly, the son of George Esterly, an inventor, who founded the Esterly Reaper Works, Whitewater’s leading nineteenth century industry. It is a later variation of the Italianate style with a taller and steeper hip roof, and a main elevation that is dominated by a tall narrow entry pavilion with a large gable and returned eaves. It was later occupied by Teacher’s College (UW-Whitewater) President, Frank Hyer. Of special note is the art glass in the inner set of entry doors.
