Want to own a well preserved piece of Trenton’s history? This c. 1896 Queen Anne residence was built for George Wolz when he relocated his family from a nearby farm to Trenton in the 1890s. Following his marriage, his son George Michael Wolz also resided in the home with his parents and new wife. He was the manager and secretary for the Trenton Brick and Tile Company, noted as the “leading manufacturing institution in Trenton.”

The Wolz home has only had three owners since it was constructed, the current owners having purchased the home in 1971 from the Wolz family. With a history of few owners, the home has retained many of its original features. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2018 with local significance under Criterion C — Architecture as an example of the Queen Anne Free Classic style. Did we mention there’s also a beautiful barn?

More information on the history of the house, significance to Trenton, and its historical features can be found in the National Register Nomination courtesy of the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office.
