This classic style home dating back to 1920, through urban legend, came to be known today as the "House of the 7 Hangings". The urban legend says its 7 inhabitants hung themselves, for no known reason, one in each of the 7 windows facing the street.

There were never any hangings, nor were there 7 inhabitants. The house was built in 1920 by Eric Knohr, and was later passed down to his son John Otto Knohr and his wife. Similar to other historic buildings, it's currently enveloped in a custody battle.
