The Augustus M. Thompson House
Supporting the preservation and appreciation of Perrysburg's historic architectural heritage
The Augustus M. Thompson House:
A much-altered home of Italianate style, this 1830s home occupying two addresses features a two-story angled bay with windows topped by segmental arches of vertically angled brick over protruding brick sills. In 1928, a two-story frame addition was made in the rear, apparently a totally separate housing unit leading to the second address of 225 West Front. A frame entrance and the porch on the right side are also additions.
Augustus M. Thompson was born near Poughkeepsie, NY in 1814, and first came to Perrysburg in 1832,
settling here permanently in 1836. He was a dry goods and grocery merchant and farmer and was active
in various civic affairs. He died here in 1875.
