Title William Nash House — Delaware, Ohio
Date Nov 1973
Object Name Transparency, Slide
Place Ohio/Delaware County/City of Delaware/William Street/East/157
Description Front of the Nash House (157 East William Street). The house was built in 1878. The initial owner was Thomas Slattery. His wife was Wilmina (Zimmer). The house was sold in late 1882 to Ann Hutchins, and in 1885 the Hutchinses sold the house to William Henry Nash. The house would stay in the Nash family for the next 69 years; three generations of the Nash family lived here.

In 1954, Pauline Nash, an active community volunteer, donated the house (and various family artifacts) to the Delaware Historical Society, hoping it could be used to educate children. Pauline passed away in 1975.
