A Rare Survivor on East 11th Avenue, The William Heckart House.

William O. Heckart, a building contractor, built this Craftsman Style house for himself circa 1908, at 365 E. 11th, but after living there only a short time purchased property at 1024 Mill St. and took up residence there in 1909. While the interior has been converted into apartments for many years, the exterior of the Heckart house is remarkably intact. Too bad the the grounds have been left to weeds.


  1. Do you know what Wm Heckart did for a living? Very odd but I am trying to trace down a Wm Heckart from 1914

  2. I found something in my Granfather's things when he died and it appears maybe they were friends or in the Navy or Coast Guards together?

  3. He was a building contractor, building several homes in the area.
