Exterior - Emilie C. Weber House
190 Ashland Avenue at Hodge St., Buffalo, NY

The house's Search lists the first owner of the property as Wilhem Willink, et. al. Willink was a member of the Holland Land Co. Main Street was first named Willink Street in the original 1804 village layout by Joseph Ellicott. The company sold the property to William Hodge in 1813.

It may be of interest to note that, in 1862 (transaction #18), the Search lists a Certificate of Incorporation for The Buffalo Historical Society. In 1889, The Buffalo Historical Society sells the property to William C. Hodge.

In 1892, Emilie C. Weber sells the property to John J. Dennison for $5,000 (transaction #21). It is presumed on this Web page that Weber is the one who built the present house. The house faces Hodge Street which runs between Ashland and Delaware Avenues.
