State Route 93, Pedro - Potter House

     The Potter House was also known as the boarding house. Built in the 1860’s, the two story frame house is located in Decatur Township in Pedro, Ohio. The building is located on State Route 93 south of Buckhorn and stands 200 feet from the road.
     The Potter House has several distinct architectural features. The gabled roof has shingles. Clapboard walls are the outside wall structure. The building is “L” shaped with a central entrance. A segmented arch is above all windows and doors. An interior end chimney and a centrally located chimney were used to heat the structure.
     During the construction of the D T & I (Detroit, Toledo, & Ironton) railroad, the house was reported to have been used as a boarding house.
     In 1986, Allice Potter was listed as the owner when the building was listed in the Lawrence County Historical Building Register.
