The History behind this lovely property -

Lady Linden was built in 1887 for industrialist Samuel Nevin Hench. He and his business partner, Walker A. Dromgold, came to York from Perry County in 1878 to manufacture farm harvesting implements for steam tractors and horse drawn. Many of these items were of their own design and patent and were shipped to international destinations. They built their houses side by side with the same design footprint here on Linden Avenue and raised their families here. Both these gentlemen were very active in the community and family members remained here until 1920.

The company expanded and a larger factory was built on North Hartley Street, just a block from their homes. Note the unusual porch supports  for both homes - cast in the Hench and Dromgold factory marked  'H & D 1887'.

After several subsequent owners the property fell into serious disrepair. Jim and Jean Leaman purchased the house in 2006 and meticulously restored it to original splendor, including wall and ceiling papers and furnishings of the era. Lady Linden is located in the Avenues district of York which continued to be developed through to the 1950's. The history of architectural styles is seen as you stroll through the neighborhood. Tours by the owner available by appointment.


Breakfast is served in the formal dining room.
