The project relocated two historic homes that Erie Insurance wanted to restore. One is the Von Buseck house, originally located on the south side of West 38th Street between Asbury and Millfair roads as part of a 100-acre farm built in the 1830s by Friedrich Von Buseck, a German immigrant, and his wife, Rachel Weigle.

The second property, known as the Judah Colt house, was built in 1820 at the corner of East Fourth and French streets. Judah Colt was the first land agent for the Pennsylvania Population Co., and entertained the Marquis de La Fayette, the French and American patriot, in this house in 1825 during La Fayette’s return to the U.S. after the Revolutionary War.

Congratulations Tom Hagen and Erie Insurance for preserving pieces of Erie’s History and reinvigorating a neighborhood.  The 200-year-old lumber was labeled, deconstructed, warehoused for several years, and then reconstructed on this new site as rental apartments. 

We are proud to have been a part of these projects providing Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Services.
