The Gasche House became a place for lodging within the last 25 years. Popular for its close proximity to Wooster's downtown area, the College of Wooster and the Ohio Light Opera. There is much to explore in the Wayne County area that includes beautiful rural areas, home to many Amish farms and businesses.
This beautiful Gothic Revival home, with its Italianate front porch is one of a few surviving private homes of this style in the area.
It was built in 1849 by Charles Gasche who became a prominent and respected resident of Wooster. In 1905 the home was sold to the Ames family. Mr. Ames had the Italianate front porch added while on his honeymoon in 1910 as a wedding gift to his wife. It is interesting to note that the home transferred ownership only a few times over the years reflecting the homes warm and inviting nature.
