By Margaret Leidy Harner from her book One Day at a Time: A Social History of Boyertown, PA,

January 4, 1927: William Stauffer, a descendant of the Stauffer family that settled in the area in the late 1700’s, has won another national award for his outstanding architectural designs. He has a reputation as the most brilliant architect in Syracuse University’s School of Architecture, where he is a student. He has also studied at the prestigious Fountainbleau School of Fine Arts in France.

Stauffer, a 1925 graduate of Boyertown High School, returned to Boyertown after college and is the noted master builder responsible for many of the distinguished homes erected in the area, building his first house at 20 West Second Street in 1931, and the magnificent Tudor home at 40 West Second Street in 1934. Bill Stauffer’s amazing career spanned more than 40 years.
