Beck-Shipman-Egnew House
327 East 14th Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
This early shotgun house appears to have been built around 1872 for Charles R. Beck, a partner in the G.W. Beck & Son edge tool manufacturing company. Lucinda Shipman, the widow of John L. Shipman, was the next owner, purchasing it from the Becks in 1880.

By 1904 Frank and Mary Ralston were living here. Although they only resided here about five years, the Ralstons continued to own the home until 1920, when Frank and Anna Egnew purchased it. Frank was a retired barber, and he remained here until 1976, following Anna's passing in 1969.
