The Warehime-Myers Mansion
305 Baltimore Street, Hanover
J. William Warehime has generously donated the Warehime-Myers Mansion, its contents and the grounds to the Hanover Area Historical Society along with an endowment for the conservation of the properties. Mr. Warehime grew up across the street from the Myers Mansion and had long admired the neo-classic structure. the mansion remained in the Myers family until 1997 when Mr. Warehime purchased it from Molly Powl Myers, a niece, who lived in Montana. At the time of purchase, most of the Myers' furniture was removed, but Mr. Warehime was able to secure a few pieces at auction, and these along with his superb collections are part of this gift. Both the Myers and Shepard residences were designed by Herman Miller, an architect from Philadelphia. The Myers Mansion was built in approximately 1911 as the residence of Clinton N. Myers of Hanover Shoe Company. Shortly after it was built, the Myers' added the solarium with its marble floors and enclosed the porches at the rear of the house. Mr. Warehime added the beveled and stained glass to these porches. He also added the fountain, gazebo and lions to the grounds. The bowling alley in the basement is still intact as are the intricately squared designed oak floors throughout the mansion. Very little in the structure has changed over the years and it is in excellent condition. The Society is delighted to be the recipient of Mr. Warehime's generosity and community-mindedness in seeing that this important piece of Hanover history will be preserved.
