296 Ely Avenue - Built 1911   

One of the first homes built in central Ely, this house stands as an example of a local architect’s desire to combine late Victorian with "Ely" vernacular architecture. This residence has been used as a Barber Shop and a small market. Neighborhood children called it the "Candy Store."

It was built in 1911 by Albert Heusser (1836-1915), one of the first pioneers in White Pine County. Mt. Heusser, named for Mr. Heusser, located just north of Hercules Gap, rises above the old Heusser Ranch's' 600 acres. The present settlement of Cross Timbers was formed on Heusser's original land. Besides his ranch, Heusser also owned a blacksmith shop and lot in Ely in 1887.
