Former Marion Houser Home

Marion and Harriet Houser built this one and one-half story house in 1940 as a combination brick and clapboard of the Cape Cod Style of architecture. They were the parents of Hentz Houser who became a quadriplegic in 1951 at the age of 17. Hentz of Things Not Seen, written by his mother, tells the true story of a young man who overcame complete paralysis to regain some use of his arms. He designed a hand gadget for picking up items which became of interest to the Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
