Weiant-Wherle House For Sale

So maybe the $15,000,000 asking price for the Longaberger Mansion is a little steep. There is another smaller mansion for sale at 444 Hudson Avenue, the Weiant-Wherle House, for $328,500. It’s a 4000 square foot 6 bedroom historic home with a  carriage house and gazebo. 

The listing is old and the house might be sold by now, but the description and photos were interesting. Weiant was the owner of the first telephone company in Newark and he owned a massive greenhouse complex east of Newark. Wherle owned the the Wherle Stove Company in Newark. 

This would seem like a good home to find get the entrepreneurial spirit. 

UPDATE – This house is no longer listed for sale when I last checked on December 18th, 2011.
