This home was the residence of the five girls that made up the family of August and Mabel.  All of the girls, with the exception of Wilma, were born in this house. 
The neighborhood has taken a turn for the worse today.  Most of the homes in the area have not been well taken care of as this home was used to when August and Mabel occupied it.

Original Porch:
-  The porch was across the entire front of the house.
-  While under construction there was a ramp extending from the North side of the porch (Ph9445.jpg, at right)
-  Front Porch Steps:
     -  Originally there were wood steps on the north side of the porch directly north of the front door.  (Ph9465.tif, at right)
     -  Later Concrete steps were put on the east end of the porch and were in place about 1940 (Ph9653-072.jpg, at right)
-  There were originally 3 round wooden posts that supported the porch roof - I believe these were removed when the porch was enclosed in the 1950s.

Enclosed Porch

According to daughter Norma, at some point Caroline Whetstone, mother of August, came to live with the family and lived in a room (porch?) off the back of the house which was later removed.  When this room was attached there was a door between the back bedroom and this room.  After that room was removed the door was replaced by the window that is present today.  S7,

--  Caroline died 21 Jan 1928.
--  She was living with her son John during the 1920 US Census
--  1921 her address was 200 E 8th St
--

There is evidence of a possible door - See the pictures at right and the area below the window - There is evidence that a possible doorway has been covered over with siding.

August Haas ID0377 was a supervisor at the plant and was employed with them from 1913 to 1943.  Most of the girls, with the exception of probably Barbara, also worked at the plant.  August contracted his lung disease from working in the plant being exposed to the silica sand used in production of the glass.  He spent some time in Washington, Pennsylvania at a clinic for his lung condition and died shortly after returning home from the treatments.  Letters and Diary Link

Other members of the family, including John Haas, brother of August and William Franklin Worthen, Brother to Mabel Worthen Haas also worked at this plant.

Extract:  "Mother made pies, jelly and canned a lot of fruit. I remember she used to make lemonade and put cherries in to make it look pretty & appetizing. She made homemade bread - so delicious, we would go around from house to house & sell it. She also baked pork loins and make big sandwich buns. She sold the sandwiches to the employees of Ball Brothers. They really did enjoy them. I also remember she would fix noon meals for the teachers at Stevenson. They would come down to our house and buy their lunch.") - [August and Mabel had this house built in 1919. August later built a garage. He also dug a basement by hand under the South portion of the house. August also built a small building that was originally used to store coal until the basement was dug. During the summer the coal house was cleaned and used by the girls as a play house. August built them furniture to use in it. The house had a back porch that went across the entire length of the back of the house. There was a door in Bedroom #2 where the south window is located. This was used by the mother of August (Caroline Whetstone Haas ID0385) while she lived with them. This door was later removed and replaced by a window. The front porch originally had 3 round pillars. The front porch was enclosed in the 1950s. The back porch was removed. House built June 1919. Phone number 9410. I can recall when it was AT (Atlas) 9410
