Owner info

Year Purchased: 1857

About the owner: The local historical society owns and operates the Yellow House. Your stay helps to support our efforts to preserve other historic properties in Erie County.

Why the Owner Chose Girard, PA, USA:
The Battles family owned the the property, which includes 50 acres of farmland, 80 acres of woods and hiking trails, and two historic houses on the property. The history dates back to Asa Battles, born in 1786. He and Elizabeth Brown lived in Chautauqua County until he purchased 300 acres in Girard. He died in 1848, and his 15-year-old son, Rush Sobieski Battles, inherited most if it, as well as the care of his mother and two unwed sisters, Alcina and Lucina. Rush Battles built a yellow Italianate style farmhouse in 1858. Rush and Henry Webster partnered to create the Webster House of Banking, and Rush married Webster's sister Charlotte. The Charlotte Elizabeth Battles Memorial Museum was named after their only surviving child who attended college, married Charles Barber, traveled and became a businesswoman when she inherited her father's estate and the bank. She donated to the Girard community and funded school construction. Charlotte Battles, she once wrote a letter to President Franklin Roosevelt in response to his banking moratorium during the Great Depression that said, 'Mr. President, we're minding our business, you do the same. Since I do not presume to tell you how to run the country, please do not presume to tell me how to run my bank.'
