Resch Park

Side A

The George and Christina Ealy House is a testament to the prosperity
of one of this area's early residents and the skills of mid-
nineteenth-century craftsmen. In 1830, members of the Ealy family
moved from Pennsylvania to a 73-acre parcel where the house and
six-acre Resch Park surrounding it are located. The Ealys were
representative of a second wave of pioneers who settled Plain
Township after 1812. The Ealys cleared land for farming and operated
a sawmill on Rose Run. George prospered and in 1860 built this fine
brick house. Architecturally, the house exhibits the transition
between Greek Revival and Italianate styles. Its layout reflects the
former; its proportions and decorative detail, the latter.

Side B

George Ealy recorded the year of the house's construction, 1860. In
his own hand in the attic. He also listed the names of the "work hands"
who built the house. They include, as masons, a father and son named
Schott, and two Beecher brothers as master carpenters. The Schotts
were a German family who moved from Columbus to Plain Township in
1850. The Beechers came from Connecticut and settled in New Albany
about the year the town was laid out, in 1837. The New Albany-Plain
Township Historical Society acquired the house in 2004. The house along
with the Resch Park was listed on the National Register of Historic
Places in 2008.
