Historical Images

01 

The Kitselman house presumably in the late 1920s or early 1930s and the early 2000s. The Kitselman family once tarried in a spacious garden south of the house, complete with urns and a fountain.

Note the addition of a room and a porch in the newer photo, in the corner nearest the camera.

03

The house was once essentially surrounded by open grounds and woods, whereas it is now the centerpiece of a thriving neighborhood, despite maintaining a sizable lawn.

04

New table, buffet, curtains, rug, and paint. Same chandelier and portrait of E. Faye Kitselman.

Gone is the promenade at the north entrance. Also, what appears to have been part of the Kitselman driveway is now Muncie's University Avenue.
