Story 1: Information from Ruth Berger: On property owned by Rose and Will Davis in the point of Indian Hill Rd. and Wooster Pike was a Livery Stable where they housed horses and buggies used by travelers and cattle drivers who stayed over night in the Inn and Tavern across the street on the corner of Elm and Wooster Pike. The barn or stable was used by Robinson Circus who trained their circus acts in this barn. The livery stable or barn burnt in 1913. I was told there were horses that died in that fire. After Will Davis built this house he had a garage and gas station there. Lou & Ken Eigher worked for Bill Davis.

Story 2: Robert Berger died June 21, 1998. Ruth (nee Berwanger) Berger died 17 Feb 2015 at 97 years. They had 6 children, 17 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren when she died.
