George Hogriever Home

George Hogriever Home at 345 W. Prospect Avenue.

This Dutch Colonial Revival style home, built in 1912, features a steeply pitched cross gambrel roof design. 

The house’s first owner was local baseball legend George "Stormy" Hogriever.  Baseball had begun early in Appleton with a succession of teams starting in 1867 with the Appleton Excelsiors and then the Appleton Badgers.  Stormy first joined the local team in 1891.  A revered player, Stormy became a minor league hero and the manager of the Appleton Papermakers, who he led to the league pennant in 1910.
