Charles Pfennig

Charles Pfennig and his wife Mina built the Italianate home at 537 W. Prospect Ave. early in the 1860's, possibly 1865.

In 1857 Frederick and Charles Pfennig purchased the Genessee Flour Mill from Colonel Theodore Conkey. After Col. Conkey's war duty he partnered with the Pfennigs and when Charles died, Conkey repurchased the mill. It was sold to Kimberly, Clark & Company in 1879.
