Every house has a narrative, a unique story separating it from the brick, mortar, and wood next door. Waiting in dusty archives and old family letters, this narrative sits. When pieced together it tells a story as extraordinary as the people who lived within its walls.
For the Geiger house on Ferncliff Hill, this narrative embodies early family life at Wittenberg College, the movement to free Southern slaves and the acceptance of educated women. Strong but worn, its walls stand today as a tribute to the remarkable family once calling it home.
