HISTORY OF OUR HOUSE
Our "home" was originally constructed in the early 1880s as a home for Christ Kaiser, an immigrant from Germany who ran a market and butcher shop on Lincoln Street. In the late 1800s and early 1900s many prominent business owners lived in this neighborhood. Alice Kaiser Sandefer, granddaughter of Christ Kaiser, who used to share her stories of the "old days" with us when she would visit the Hearthstone from time to time, generously donated the many historic photographs of the house and the Kaiser family which we've placed on the walls upstairs in the Victorian Lounge.
As can be seen from some of the photographs, the building has undergone a number of renovations and additions over the years. Since the late 60s it has been the home of several restaurants, most famously Andrea's Pleasure Palace during the 1970s and early 1980s.
In 1989 we purchased the building and after a bit of renovation and re-decorating, we re-opened in November of that year as the Hearthstone Restaurant.
