Kreischer House

Kreischer House

4500 Arthur Kill Rd., Built 1886
Designated February 20, 1968
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

Built for Charles C. Kreischer, son of industrialist Balthasar Kreischer, the profusely decorated house is an excellent example of the Stick Style, a transitional American architectural style between the Carpenter Gothic and the Queen Anne styles. Recently uncovered documentation supports the construction date as 1886. A mirror-image house was built for Charles's brother, Edward, on an adjacent lot; it no longer stands. Later owner/occupants included the Simonsons and the Greenfields.
