Designed to house a large family, maid and butler, this home harkens to the charm of days gone by, but modernized for luxury living. Local businessman, Hiram Wantz purchased the home as an investment, later selling the property to Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company (C&P) executive Vinton Hershey, and wife, Emily. You can still see Mr. Hershey's legacy in the multiple phone panels capable of supporting numerous phone lines. Another local businessman, Clifford Springer, purchased the home from the estate of Emily Hershey later selling the property to Christian Wright, President of Wright-Gardner Insurance and wife, Julie. These stewards and their families have ensured that the original beauty and charm Mr. Hardinge envisioned brightened their lives and survived to the present for the next steward to enjoy.
