Gustav Karewski House

Gustav Karewski House

The widowed Johanna Levi purchased this Jacksonville home at the corner of 5th and C streets in 1870, shortly before marrying Gustav Karewski, a prosperous dry goods merchant and miner. When farming became more important than mining, Karewski opened Karewski’s Agricultural Implements, dealing in plows, graders, harvesting machines, and steam-powered tractors. The Karewskis made several alterations to the original 1867 structure including additions, porches, and the gabled hipped roof.
