2013 PRESERVATION AWARD WINNERS
At the May 16 Annual Meeting . . .
CPS presented a 2013 Annual Preservation
Award in the Residential category to Sue and W.R. Timken, Jr., current owners of the Charles Balough Home located
at 2321 Brentwood Road NW, Hills & Dales. Accepting the award
on behalf of the Timkens was architect Anthony Luketic of A.A. Luketic & Associates of Rootstown, Ohio.
The original home was built in 1928 for Charles
Balough, hired by H.H. Timken to manage the Hercules Motor Company.
Previously, Mr. Balough had been apprentice to Henry Ford during
development of the Model T.
In recent years, Mr. Luketic's firm designed
additions to the 1920s Tudor home, originally designed by Herman J.
Albrecht of Massillon. The new wings blend seamlessly onto both ends of
the original home, preserving the original style and detail. Over 80%
of materials removed from the original home to make way for the new
Also presented a 2013 Annual Preservation Award in the Residential Category were Kathy and David Waltz, who have restored the Barber-Whitticar Home at 519 Cleveland Ave SW, Canton.
The Queen Anne/Colonial Revival home was built in
1902 as the home of Orrin W. Barber, grain merchant and relative of Ida
McKinley. For decades after 1928, the house served as the Ralph M.
Whitticar Funeral home. It was added to the National Register of
Historic Places in 1982.
The house is notable for its extensive, original
woodwork and spacious window bays. Except for the installation of
kitchen countertops and the repair of one leaded glass window, Mr. and
Mrs. Waltz can proudly say they did all of the restoration work
