Swan Street Financial


328 South 5th Street is one of Terre Haute’s outstanding historical landmarks. The Romanesque revised style home is graced by two hexagonal towers, ceramic tile fireplaces, and stained and leaded glass. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places in Farrington Grove.  The home was built in 1894 by successful businessman Robert S. Cox and his wife, and was sold to Dr. and Mrs. Walker A. Schell, after the Coxes moved to Buffalo.  Dr. Schell, a prominent area physician for twenty-five years, made this his home for seven years.  



Max and Theresa Blumberg purchased the home from Mrs. Schell in 1916 and made it their family home until Mr. Blumberg’s death in 1934. Mr. Blumberg was the founder of Security Loan Company.  The Blumbergs' only child, Benjamin, and his wife Fannie, presented the family residence to the Public Health Nursing Association (now Visiting Nurse Association of the Wabash Valley) in 1939 in memory of his mother.

In 2007, the home was purchased by Gay Ann Weaver who has restored the building to a beautiful Victorian style.  The Blumberg Home is now the home of Swan Street Financial where Gay Ann is the branch manager.
