Koester House (1859) – D1

421 South Seguin Avenue – Built by the city’s first physician, Dr. Theodore Koester, this is one of the city’s most impressive historic homes, with three stories, 15 rooms and 18-inch limestone walls.  This mid-19th century house, constructed in the new Anglo-American vernacular, also included a kitchen, basement, dumbwaiter, and other architectural innovations for the time period.  Now an office building.
