1364 Maple Street

14 Jun


1364 Maple St. Built in 1928 by Dr. John L. Olsaver. Doctor Olsaver was a dentist that put himself through the School of Dentistry at the University of Michigan (1911 Grad). John Olsaver married Marguerite Hough, the daughter of Lewis Cass Hough (President, Daisy Air Rifle Co.) and they were actually married in the Hough mansion which once stood at 243 N Main Street.

Today this piece of Plymouth history is definitely one to be admired. The current owners have worked meticulously to make this house an inspiration and to preserve all the historic aspects of this home. The interior is ornate and with detailed, hand painted walls, beautiful woodwork, and so much more that makes this home one to be marveled for years to come. Not only have the owners done a fabulous job with the restoration and preservation of this home but are two of our kindest residents that have put forth their own sweat equity and financial support to save some of Plymouth’s most treasured structures such as the Historic Plymouth High School (on Church St) and Post office (on Penniman Ave). Plymouth is very fortunate to have such magnificent residents and preservationists and we are also proud to have such a fantastic home as part of our community.

    I go back as far as the Randalls, then the Carlsons and now Malcombs.

    Thanks for your research! I used to live about 3 blocks from there, and one of my son’s friends lived in that house. And you are right, the couple who lives there now have been wonderful to Plymouth. I love the old fashioned garden in front, it reminds me of Europe. You mention the Daisy Air Rifle company: it seems to have been very important at that time. My husband’s Dad moved his steel factory to Farmer St. across the Cultural Center from Detroit (near Daisy’s…)
