Paul & Charles Kofford House


One of Spring City’s earliest stone houses it was built for Paul E. Kofford (1813-1891) (aka Koffoed) by stonemason Peter Olsen Hansen (1850-1926). Kofford, a Dane, was as a translator between Scandinavian immigrants in Spring City and the English speaking pioneers. He had learned English during his early career as a sea captain. The house plan is uncommon with a front facing parlor followed by two rooms at the rear. Paul’s son Charles acquired the house and resided there for many years. The house was renovated and restored in 2005.
