The Erb-Kumpf House
Greetings, and welcome to another edition of the latest WRX Property series – the Heritage Properties of Kitchener-Waterloo! Today, we’ll be covering a rather distinctive residential property in the City of Waterloo. What’s distinctive about it? Well, a few things, each of which will be elaborated upon over the course of this article. But here’s one: it’s probably the oldest house still standing in all of Waterloo.
The name of today’s property is the Erb-Kumpf House. It’s located at 172 King Street South, right near the heart of Uptown Waterloo, and not far from Waterloo’s border with Kitchener. Before we dive in, it’s worth noting the interesting detail that this area was where settlement in Waterloo really got started, and today it’s one of the best areas to call home. Some things change, while some remain the same!
