The Gustav William Niemann House

Regardless of the fate of the Optimists Building, I still just absolutely love the Niemann House. Gustav William Niemann lived in this house around the turn of the Twentieth Century, and it’s a reminder that Lindell Boulevard was once lined with residences such as this. It was renovated into law offices several years ago, and its architecture is indicative of that transitional period in the late Nineteenth Century right before the Beaux-Arts became prominent.
