Marker Text Edward ("Mr. Ed") Boettcher moved to Huntsville in 1928 to begin new logging operations in the nearby pine forests. His Boettcher Mill supplied the lumber for the fine interior woodwork in this house, which was built in 1933-34 for Boettcher and his family. A notable example of its style, the Tudor bungalow features classical elements in its palladian entry and the broken-pedimented gables. The house remained in the family after Boettcher's death in 1967.
