Gingrich House

Location:

La Porte City
300 Walnut

Designed by John Ralston, this home was first occupied in 1916 by Clement B. Gingrich, a well-known citizen of La Porte City who was involved with politics and also was manager of the Co-operative Creamery in La Porte City. In addition, Mr. Gingrich was a founder of the Farmer's Mutual Telephone Exchange in La Porte City. The house is architecturally significant because of the extent of its preservation. No major changes have occurred within the home since it was built. Many of the original details remain, including original bathroom fixtures, a cistern and pocket doors. As of October 1996, the home is being considered for placement on the Nation Register of Historic Places. It is maintained as a private residence.
