  King William Street
by VeronicaG
 
 

The King William district was quite an elegant neighborhood where the movers and shakers of the period lived. Successful businessmen who became wealthy from investing and retailing, built lavish homes in this district. Most had come from Germany and had constructed their 'castles' in the mid-1800's.

As we explored King William Street, we saw that each house oozed refinement and affluence from the moment one stepped up to its ornate fencing. (To see more, please go to my travelogue.)

The Guenther House and Steves Homestead are opened for tour, but most are private residences. A walking tour guide is available at the visitor's center in town or at the Anton Wulff house at 107 King William street.
