     Sandusky was purchased by George Christian Hutter from John and Lucy Otey on April 1, 1842. The Hutter family owned Sandusky from this date, through the Civil War and until 1952 when they sold the home and the 3.84 acres it resides on to Nevil and Louise Adkinson.

     Included in the time period the Hutters owned Sandusky is the Civil War. During the Civil War George Christian, Harriet and Ada Hutter lived in Sandusky and were present in the home when it was taken over by Union forces. It is this time period that is interpreted at Historic Sandusky today. The Hutter family are still actively involved at Sandusky and often serve as advisors to the Historic Sandusky Foundation.
