The Mann-Hahn-Heiter House
517 East Fourth Street
New Albany, IN 47150
Sheriff Sale

Listing Description:

Built c.1865. Shotgun. The Mann-Hahn-Heiter House. Elizabeth Mann purchased this lot in January of 1864 for $400.00 and the house was built a short time later. Elizabeth and her husband, Levi, lived her through 1870, at which time the home at 521 East 4th Street was constructed and the family moved up the street. The Manns continued to own the property until July of 1886. After Levi’s death in the early 1880s, Elizabeth ran a notions shop out of the house until selling it to George Feibach.

The New Albany City Directory of 1890 lists Michael, Lena, Phillip, and Jacob Hahn residing here. The family apparently rented the property first because records indicate that Lena Hahn did not purchase it until January of 1900. Michael was a cooper for Geo. Feibach; Lena was a seamstress, Phillip was a cigar maker for Casper Feiock, and Jacob was an inspector for the Louisville, New Albany, & Chicago Railroad. Hahn family members continued to occupy the house through the mid teens, although not owning it after June of 1910.

For a time, the property was used for rental purposes and in August of 1949 the next long-term resident purchased the home. Guy Heiter, a freight-machine operator for the Indiana Gas & Water Co., occupied the house and remained through the mid 1970s.
