This is the house that Franz Xaver Schillinger bought in 1900 in on Jerome Street in New Lots, Brooklyn. For the next 20 years 10 – 11 members of his family would live there with him, including his daughter Mary, her husband and 3 children, and his son Charles, his sister-in-law and his three children. It is a 2000 square foot house, located a block off Atlantic Avenue. Within blocks of this home, his son Louis and his family lived on Schenck Avenue and his daughter Catherine lived on Logan Street. St. Michael and St. Malachy Catholic Church is located across the street.
