Built in 1849, The Gasche House became a Bed & Breakfast in 1986. It is part of the "Founders Row" area of Wooster. It is popular for its close proximity to Wooster's downtown area shops, restaurants, the College of Wooster and the Ohio Light Opera. There is also much to explore in the Wayne County area, including 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 was 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 5 times over the 169 years! Current owners Genevieve and Bill Everett are working to revive the houses European flavor.
