|Birth: ||Aug. 19, 1868|
Annie M. Bauscher, born in August 19, 1868 , was educated at the State Normal School in Kutztown , Pennsylvania and was a teacher in the Albany schools for many years. She was a woman of high ideals and has been a leader and a light in the community, particularly in education and religious fields. In 1910 she traveled abroad and resided in the house, which she completely modernized (for the year 1917) and most tastefully decorated. She added inlaid hardwood flooring from Germany and French tile in the upstairs bathroom.
The house was built in two time frames. Henry and Sara Bauscher constructed the original structure in 1879. Their daughter, Annie Bauscher, did the second construction in 1909 and 1910 when she added the kitchen wing and the carriage house along with other major improvements.
Henry and Sara passed on in 1908 and 1909, leaving their house to their unmarried daughter, Annie.
There is no reference when the cottage was built, but it is believed that it was probably constructed with the original home. The cottage was used as the summer kitchen.
Annie took in guests, and for that reason we refer to the bed & breakfast as a guesthouse. Possibly during the summer, the guests came to the Albany Station by railroad and were brought to the house by Annie in her fashionable carriage.
Mabel Edna Bauscher, daughter of William G. Bauscher (son of Henry Bauscher and step brother to Annie M.) occasionally lived with Annie. Mabel later inherited the large brick house from Annie.
