Stuard-Pfrimmer House
158 Cherry Street
New Albany, IN 47150
Sheriff Sale

Listing Description:
Benton McClintick purchased lots four thru 14, block 10, on Cherry Street in the Griffin Tract in August 1888 for $400.00. This area of New Albany was once known as West Union, and McClintick lived just a few blocks away on Ealy Street near Griffin Street.
He had this house built on Lot 14 and sold it to Lilly Stuard for $825.00 in April 1891. Stuard was a seamstress for Mrs. Lottie M. Pralle, located at 140 East Main Street in downtown New Albany. She remained on Cherry Street until selling the home to the Pfrimmer family in May 1892, for $1,000.00.

William Pfrimmer was a travel agent and Emma, Edmonia and Kathrine Pfrimmer were all teachers, with Emma and Edmonia teaching at the old West Spring Street Elementary School. Hattie Pfrimmer was an operator at the New Albany Clothing Co., located at 141 East Main Street.

The Pfrimmers sold the property in September 1903 and it appears the house was used as rental property thru the next two owners.  In October 1910, the home was sold to Dillard family and they would remain until 1917. James Dillard was an engineer. It is very likely that the Great Cyclone of 1917 caused considerable damage to the structure, and when the 1917 New Albany City Directory was printed after the storm, the property was listed as being vacant. The cyclone (tornado) caused catastrophic damage to numerous parts of the City of New Albany and claimed 60 lives.

The property’s judgment number is 22D01-1905-MF-000778. With this number you can visit the Clerk’s Office in the City-County building and enter it into their computers to find the judgment owed on the property. This is public record.
