The Nash House

This brick Italianate-style house overlooking Delaware’s East William Street was built in 1878 for Thomas and Mina Slattery. The home is named for William Henry Nash and his wife Emeline who purchased the home in 1885 and remained a Nash family residence for until 1954. At that time, Miss Pauline Nash presented the house to the Delaware County Historical Society.

The Nash House is furnished in the Victorian period with donated furnishings that have a direct connection to Delaware County. The period pieces range from an ornately carved desk crafted by OWU Art Professor Dorthea Graham to a 1928 General Electric Refrigerator. The furnishings and reproduction wallpaper make this home a showplace of the elegant Victorian era.
