Hans Peter Olsen House

Description:

Hans Peter Olsen built this home in 1877. It is a fine example of pioneer brick architecture and is listed on the Nation Register of Historic Places. It has a T-shaped, two-story floor plan. A strong feature is its symmetrical, three-bay dormered facade with round-arched upper windows. The double end wall chimneys and Federal entry bay are distinctive, as are the curved, molded bricks in the fancy cornice. On the main floor is a front hall, narrow stairway with carved banister and balustrades, front parlor, front bedroom, dining room with original fireplace and living room. Upstairs is a large front bedroom and two small rooms. There is a one-story addition on the rear with a kitchen and porch.

Olsen came from Denmark in 1858. After building this home, he returned to Denmark on two missions for the LDS Church. Olsen had a family and was a farmer in Fountain Green. He served as director of the local co-op store.
