This Italianate home was built in 1897 by Arthur and Elsa Koenig of Steyr, Austria. Arthur was a resident agent for Phillips Best Brewing Company of Milwaukee. The Koenig House has become something of a signature of historic Dayton's Bluff. While its larger peers have gone down or disappeared into their alterations, the Koenig House continues to command its lofty site. An early limestone wall sets it off from the street, while its profusion of wings, bays, and porches sprawl out over the flattened crest of the Eichenwald hill. The truncation of its corner tower is the only significant exterior loss. A few pieces of ornamental iron cresting still poke up from the roofs to give a sense of the lacy skyline that once graced so many Italianate houses in the area.
