1975 Owner:  Daniel Boone & Kathryn B. Startsman
Description: Original house: 2 story brick "Cape Cod" with own ideas, gable roof.  Daniel Boone Startsman was in the glass business - worked throughout with large "Thermopane windows" wherever possible.  Full basement ("Rathskeller" & Vitrolite Bar in basement.  Pool table (large slate and  wood heirloom type).
Story 1: One of the Terrace Park Country Club golf greens was in the north east corner of the 150 ft. frontage  and a tennis court had been in the center of the lot.  Actually this land may have been a golf green before the Terrace Park Country Club was actually started on land on the Little Miami River side of Miami Avenue between 101 and 313.
Story 2: Building was started in 1948.  In January 1949 a fire started at the base of the stairs opening to the 2nd floor.  Finally got in, May 1949.  
Story 3: From a November 1992 Village Views article plus:  Daniel Boone Startsman was born in December 1912 in an upstairs bedroom of his parents recently finished home (223 Rugby).  A doctor came over from Milford to assist.  He grew up in a Terrace Park that had sparse population and lots of open spaces.  His father worked in downtown Cincinnati and commuted there by train which then came right through Terrace Park.  Dan graduated from Terrace Park School in 1930 in one of the largest classes: 21.  "After graduating from Washington and Lee in 1934 Startsman joined his father at the Glenny Glass Co., the oldest glass company west of the Allegheny Mountains.  He worked with other family members there until 1973, then went to Nurre Building Materials and worked until his second retirement in 1985."   The Startsmans lived for a brief time in Madisonville with Dan's mother-in-law.  Otherwise Dan has always lived in Terrace Park.  He says, "It's never occurred to me to live anywhere else, although my wife, Kath, thought she was moving to the boondocks when I brought her here."  Dan's son and grandson are also named Daniel Boone Startsman. (more family information at 223 Rugby)
Story 4: Shirley A. Startsman Selman was born 25 February 1917 and died 14 September 1996, aged 79 years, buried in Section 16 of Greenlawn Cemetery, Milford OH.  She was Guy Startsman's daughter from whom Dan bought the lot (see deeds).  Daniel H. and Guy Startsman were brothers, sons of William G. Startsman.  Dan Startsman died in 2000.
Story 5 Stephanie West is Robert & Dorothy Haines' granddaughter, daughter of Bob & Sharon Haines.
