"History of Houses"                   

Have you ever driven around Colerain Township and wondered: How old is THAT house? Who lived there? What's the family history? 

Stop in the CHS Museum and get the answer to your questions with the current exhibit.

Check out the history of Houses in Colerain Township.


CREEDVILLE Post Office was established in 1880, and its first Postmaster was Fridolon Gutzwiller.


Fridolin Gutzwiller and his wife Theresa had 11 children. They lived in a large two-story brick home built in 1850 located at the southern merger of Cheviot and Blue Rock Roads. The Gutzwiller home was used as a hotel, tavern, general; store and post office.


In the late 1930s, the home was replaced by the current retail structure: a bank, a carpet store,   

Chili Company and now Mad Mike's Burgers.


Museum is open to the public
