"Whimsical Haven"

 Built circa 1873  - 1877

9 Athens Street Waverly, NY

We do not receive any mail at this address, please send any pictures or information to amy@zehr.net    Thank You!

Many of the local residents still refer to it as the "Carriage House." We have named it "Whimsical Haven."

Date of construction is not known. It is not drawn on an 1869 map, though it was rare on that particular map to have the barns drawn in. Tax records indicate it was built in 1866. This is the 1869 map:

In 1873, Dewitt Slaughter had his home, at 208 Chemung street, repaired and, as the newspaper article said "rebuilt would be the better word." Dewitt died in 1875, leaving the home to his son, Samuel Slaughter. In 1877, Samuel Slaughter purchased the octagon home on Chemung street (on the west side of his home) with the land to the south and west of his home. In 1878, Samuel was greatly improving his residence at 208 Chemung street and putting down a sidewalk with curbing, along with a horseblock and hitching post. In 1879, he removed the octagon house from the Chemung street yard down to 7 Athens street. In 1881, he improved his heating system and in 1883, added the iron cresting to his home. In 1887, he had his residence repainted. The residence was steadily being improved on, so it could have been any of those times, that the carriage house was built. It appears that there was an earlier barn closer to the house pre - 1874. I am guessing that the pre - 1874 barn was taken down and the new carriage house was built after Samuel's marriage to Charlotte Wells in 1873. This new carriage house could have also been part of Dewitt's wedding gift to his son and daughter-in-law as it has been said the house at 208 Chemung street was a wedding gift. Or, Samuel could have had the carriage house built after he purchased the octagon house, which I would then date it as circa 1877.

Around 1915, the carriage house was used as an automobile garage, which was when Gertrude Slaughter married George Brinker Knapp.

November 15, 1945, Gertrude Knapp sold the property to Mary Fralick, who converted the property into apartments; six in the main house, two in the former carriage house, and one in the other outbuilding. See Proprietors page and See Genealogy page, also See Mrs. Mary I. Fralick page.

Wrote on March 2013, by Tom, who moved into a home near 7 Athens street in 1942. "1942, 7 Athens street was an empty lot." "On a lower level from the residence was a large carriage house, gray in color, and in the same style as the house on the corner. I recall the carriage house having large swinging doors which were usually closed. In the six years I lived there I never saw Mrs. Knapp or her daughter outside the house, although I saw Charlotte and waited on her at Shepard Hills Country Club." "In 1947 or 1948 the carriage house was converted to a residence ..."

The large swinging barn doors were in the back of the carriage house. They were replaced by the back staircase to the second floor and the two enclosed back porches at the time of converting the former carriage house into two apartments, one apartment on the first floor and one on the second floor.

This picture was taken during the conversion of the carriage house into two apartments around 1945-1950. Photo courtesy of Scott Lawrence:

Aug. 11, 1950 The Evening Times - Waverly - Al Bernstein of New York city is visiting his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Jules Helfner of Athens street (9 1/2 Athens street)

Jan. 30, 1951 The Evening Times - Modern Furnishings Place Stamp of Originality on Waverly Apartment. You don’t have to live in a rambling ranch-type home to use modern designs in furniture and decorating. A four-room upstairs apartment can be furnished in the latest fashion, and with surprising ease, your new blonde-wood-frame chairs and sofas will fit in with the lines of a rook that was built dozens of years ago. Proof of this may be found in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jules Helfner, 9 Athens street, Waverly. The Helfners have a four-room apartment, and it’s upstairs, but once you climb the stairs and enter their indoors porch, the resemblance to the usual second story walk-up ends. Like a page from a bulletin at the Modern Arts Museum, their color-conscious living-dining room takes you to California or Mexico. Green-gold bamboo design wallpaper sets the pattern of elegance, and is set off by the dark green-painted woodwork. An Orozco painting “Zapatista,” echoes the color scheme of the room, which is cocoa, shades of green and gold. The free-form sofa is in cocoa, its two rounded-end sections divided by a bleached oak table. Atop the table is a novel flower-design lamp, which has a gilt base fashioned as a flower stem and with red glass shades in the shape of the flowers themselves. The coffee table, also free-form, is in tropical Korina wood. Like the sofa, the chairs in the living room have all foam-rubber seats. A handsome easy chair in a square shape is covered in a deep green, gold-laced fabric and has a bleached oak and glass combination table beside it. Two more large chairs, covered in a tropical leaf material of hunter green, olive and chartreuse with burgundy and red, have arms of part-fabric and part bleached wood, in a square design. Above these chairs is a copper plaque of an African maiden, in Rabajes copper. The living room and dining room are made spacious because there is no wall between them. Division of the two rooms is made by four gold and green twisted satin ropes, stretched from floor to ceiling. This simple but effective method of separating the rooms was devised by Mrs. Helfner, and executed by her husband, with a little imagination, scotch tape and some cup-hooks to fasten the ropes to floor and ceiling. Wallpaper also heightens the division of the rooms. The dining alcove has an Oriental print wallpaper, with a yellow background and green and white figures. It blends with the bamboo paper in the living room and forms an elegant background for the black lacquer and yellow leather dining table and chairs. The table has a black formica top and its edge is gold metal trimmed. A huge oblong of a storage dresser fills the wall at one end of the bedroom in the Helfner residence. Of solid mahogany bleached grey, it has a mirror running its full length, and framed in the same wood. Sliding doors at the front of the dresser reveal dozens of small pull-out stage drawers. The bed and another dresser are also in grey bleached mahogany in a “picture frame” design which offers the advantage of  recesses at the base of each unit for toe-room, as is used in many kitchen units. Three solid rose-papered walls are varied with a cornstalk pattern in rose and blue as the headboard wall for the bed. Free-form lamps are also used to light this room. Dominant colors in the bathroom are royal blue cabinets with chartreuse accents. The kitchen’s color scheme is green and yellow.

1951 directory: Mrs. George B. Knapp, Charlotte S. Knapp on first floor of former carriage house and Jules Helfner (Sylvia B.), emp. Lehigh Valley, on the second floor. After selling the estate, Mrs. Gertrude Knapp went to 470 Pennsylvania ave. to live temporarily until moving back to her former estate in one of the newly converted apartments in the main house for a short time, and then moved down into their former carriage house, before leaving their family's estate and moving into apartments at 436 Pennsylvania Avenue (no longer standing) in Waverly. It seems like it would have been a strange transition for Mrs. Gertrude Knapp and her daughter Miss Charlotte Knapp, renting an apartment in their former home, where they both were born and raised.

March 29, 1951 The Evening Times - An account of the history and activities of the Red Cross was given to members of Carantouan DAR at their meeting this week at the home of Mrs. Gertrude Knapp, 9 Athens street, Waverly. Mrs. George Edsall, regent, presided and conducted the business session, at which committee reports were given and letters from Crossnore and Tamassee schools read by Mrs. Knapp. Mrs. John Krill read the president’s message which cited the present need for patriotic service. Mrs. Carl Coots, Red Cross director in Waverly, traced the history of the Red Cross organization and described its many services, which include home nursing, nutrition, canteens, first aid, blood program and production corps. She showed how local chapters help families of servicemen by contacting them on the battlefronts, and aiding in establishing allotment and insurance claims. The aid given in 1946 to flood victims at the Cannon Hole was mentioned by Mrs. Coots as well as instances when the Red Cross aided fire victims in the area. The Red Cross was responsible for saving a load of perishable goods left in the Valley when a truckman became ill and was taken to a local hospital. After contacting the trucker’s family, the Red Cross obtained a bonded local trucker to continue to New York with the goods and deliver them in good shape, she said. The talk was followed by a social hour, with refreshments served by the following committee: Mrs. Lewis Atwater, Mrs. Frank Merriam, Mrs. Howard DeWitt and Mrs. Manley Brink.

Isabel Wass 62 yo. widow; lodger Jules Helfner 24 yo., electrical engineer apprentice; lodger Sylvia Helfner 23 yo., first and second grade teacher. - Jan. 12, 1950 The Evening Times - They Were Both There Story of GI’s Rescue in Germany Has Dramatic Ending in Valley. A dramatic finish to an incident of the past war was furnished the other day when Jules Helfner of New York city, now of Athens, and Bill McGavin of Wilkes-Barre, met in the Sayre Lehigh Valley shops. The two men, electrical engineers and special apprentices at the shops were exchanging war reminiscences following their casual introduction and discovered that they both has seen action in the same section of Germany, as soldiers in the First army. Jules was a first aid man and a litter bearer in the 415th regiment of the 104th Infantry division. There followed many questions of “Do you remember this and were you ever in this town” and each time one or the other would bring forth an incident of their experiences. When Bill McGavin asked Jules if he was ever in Merkin following the Battle of the Roer River, Jules said he didn’t know the town too well. “That was the place, wasn’t it,” he asked, “where we crept over the slit trenches of the Germans and hid in the cellars? I recall that in the morning they came out for roll call, and we blasted them all over the place.”  “It’s funny’,  he went on, “now that you mention it, but the only other thing I remember from that town is that once when I had a few hours leave I started out exploring and went down into the bombed-out cellar of this house. Thought maybe I could find a bottle of wine.” He laughed. “I just got down there when I saw this GI lying in a bin of potatoes. He sure had got it. Shot through the guts and a big hole in his back. He was out and in pretty bad shape. I gave him a shot of sulfa and bandaged him up a little and had one heck of a time getting him out of the cellar and finding a litter for him. Finally got him on the way to the hospital, but lost my desire for any further investigation. I often wondered if he pulled out of it.” Bill didn’t say anything of a minute, a far away look came in his eyes as he said, “Helfner, that guy lived. I was the GI you dragged out of the cellar.”

In fact, after dealing with his first major disaster during the Jan. 19 flood, Horton is more determined than ever to make sure the area is prepared for life’s uncertainties. “You take a prime example - Route 17,” Horton said. “There’s a lot of truck traffic and you never know what’s on those trucks. You always have to be prepared to do something. You have to be prepared for “What if …?” As disaster chairman, Horton has to make sure the Red Cross and other emergency agencies it works with are prepared for any catastrophe. He said that includes not only major disasters like floods, blizzards, and chemical spills, but smaller calamities that affect people every day. “They’re all important,” Horton point out. “If your house burns down, who loses? You do. We’re there to give you aid.” Horton likes to practice what he preaches. He got involved with the Red Cross while he attended high school in Waverly, and over the years, he has donated more than 18 gallons of blood. Then he’s not giving blood, Horton donates his time. … Horton is a water treatment operator and lab technician with Consumers Pennsylvania Water Co., which supplies water to Sayre, Athens, South Waverly, and Athens Township. … Leon Horton, address: Chemung. Family: Wife, Dona Lee. Three children. One grandchild. Education: Waverly Central High School, 120 hours of training in water treatment from Clemson University. … Hobbies: Reconstructing homes, gardening, hiking. Quotable: “There’s a lot of wonderful people who do volunteer work. I always felt you should give back to the community when you can, as often as you can.” - Nov. 27, 2006 Elmira Star Gazette - Donalee (Seymour) Horton Age 61, of Wilawana Road passed away, Nov. 23, 2006 at Saint Joseph Hospital in Elmira.

Dec. 14, 2016 The Evening Times - Village Trustee Patrick Ayres announced during Tuesday’s board of trustees meeting that he will run for mayor in next year’s mayoral election season. The decision comes just weeks after current Mayor Dan Leary announced that he would not be seeking reelection after his latest two-year term ends. Ayres, who currently serves as the village’s deputy mayor, had been nominated earlier this year by the Tioga County Democratic Committee to run against Republican Dennis Mullen for the unexpired two-year term of the fifth district legislative representative seat - which Mullen later won during the Nov. 8 general election. “After careful consideration, I’ve decided to run for mayor of the Village of Waverly in March,” Ayres said. “I can never hope to do what Dan has done for the village, but I would like to give it a shot. And I  hope to have some help from Dan in that position along the way.” In the village’s last election this past March, Ayres was among two other trustees - Andrew Aronstam and Darren Uhl - to run uncontested for the two-year terms of their respective seats. The post of mayor is one of several positions up for grabs during the village election on March 21. The other posts are the trustees’ positions of Chris Bewster, Jerry Sinsabaugh and Mike Steck, and the village justice position currently held by David Boland. … From Choice 102, WAVT radio March 19, 2019., Patrick Ayres reelected Mayof of Waverly. Feb. 24, 2023 - The Daily Review by Johnny Williams - Waverly - “This is transformative, and it’s expected to be transformative,” said Waverly Mayor Patrick Ayres from his village hall office on Wednesday. … The years worth of work during his tenure - from revitalizing a local park to rewriting a 40-year-old comprehensive plan - was finally paying off. … nothing could take the smile from Ayres’ face, as he had just arrived from Johnson City after meeting New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and bringing $4.5 million back to the village he represents. … “Montour Falls and Waverly represent some of the best that New York State has to offer: natural beauty, a vibrant business community, thriving agriculture, and culturally rich historical sites,” Hochul said. … will be able to leverage these assets and state funding to revitalize their downtowns, … “We at the village approached LeeAnn Tinney (Tioga County Director of Economic Planning and Development) and asker her ‘why not us?’” said Ayres. They quickly found out. For starters, the village’s comprehensive plan had not been updated since the 1980s. … “We basically created a whole new plan,” Ayres said. “We invested our own money into creating that plan as well as the downtown study. We have a new DPW building. We basically rebuilt our wastewater facility. We got other grants like the one to rebuild the Glen and the Main Street grants. I think we really proved ourselves and positioned ourselves over the course of several years to make this happen.” …

The Nifty lift will come in handy. 2010, the year we purchased the estate. This was the first side of the former carriage house at 9 Athens street we started restoration on. Asbestos siding all removed. The bottom window had previously replaced four smaller windows of the carriage house:

These two back enclosed porches, one lower and one upper, were added in 1920 according to tax records, but they are not shown on a 1925 photo. On a 1927 Sanborn map, it is still labeled as an automobile garage and not showing the porches. Passed down from owner to owner, they were added at the time of converting into two apartments around 1947. Also, according to a neighbor from the 1940's, the large barn doors were still on until about 1947:

2023 Former Carriage House at 9 Athens street

Interesting is that many people think that the former "garage apartment" and garages, circa 1947 to 2010, at 208 1/2 Chemung street, was the former carriage house and or think that the garage areas were the former stables. The garages were not original to the property until circa 1947. The garages were added onto the west end of the original outbuilding at 208 1/2 Chemung street by Mrs. Mary Fralick who converted the estate into an apartment complex. The former carriage / coach house is here, at 9 Athens street, and the carriage house most likely doubled as a stables. We believe this could be true, for we found remnants of hay in the attic of 9 Athens street when doing some repair, and also found a few stall doors that were highly likely taken from 9 Athens street and re-used in the basement of main house, at 208 Chemung street. The former garages at 208 1/2 Chemung street are now being used for storage.

In 2023, village is having the water mains replaced on Athens street.

Our goal for the future is to put a slate roof on the carriage house, as it originally had one. In 1981, it still had a slate roof on the front, but the back slate had been removed.
