August H. Moss House

August Moss was a prosperous banker and merchant.

He lived in this grandiose mansion built for him in 1842, residing near prominent Sanduskians such as Oran Follett, Lester Hubbard, and his brother J. O. Moss. This expansive, elegant home is an example of Gothic Revival Architecture. Originally the house had small paned windows and a balcony over the front entry. The glass windows and porch were added near the end of the nineteenth century.
