The Kirsch home was probably built soon after 1905 when Mrs. E. 0. Kirsch purchased the lot from E. R. Hays. It does not appear on the Sanborn Insurance maps until 1922, but the previous maps do not include that area of town. The husband of Mrs. Kirsch, Albion Kirsch, was a merchant and ran a dry goods store on Main Street in Bamberg. Albion Kirsch was a German immigrant.
