Boehling Family History
The Boehling family history in the United States is relatively short. The first Boehling born in America was Herman Heinrich Anton Boehling in 1850, in Richmond, Virginia. His father, Herman Heinrich Boehling and second wife, Maria Elizabeth Gerling immigrated to America from Alfhausen, Germany. Young Herman married Mary Gertrude Holzgrefe. They had 7 children, the youngest of whom was John Joseph Boehling, whose line this page traces. - Blair Museum & Historical Society
Huntt, born in Richmond and the grandson of one of Richmond’s earliest architects, Otis Manson, practiced in town from 1892 to 1920, designing a host of buildings of every type and in every style. This is his finest surviving commercial design. The fireproof reinforced concrete building has exterior details reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts movement. The facade has massive piers topped by round corbeled arches. Beneath the arches are steel casement windows. The exterior cladding alternates between green and white tile and dark brick.- Society of Architectural Historians
