History of 124 42nd Street

While this home was built in 1854 for German immigrants, the current owners had to liberate it from a 1970s-era remodeling job. Fortunately, most of the original woodwork and stained glass were untouched and the owners concentrated on preserving and restoring the architectural and ornamental details throughout the home.

The house once contained a small storefront with tenants living above. In 1904, a brick addition in the Queen Anne style was built onto the home by William Dogonka, whose initials are etched in the glass of the front inside door.

William Dogonka was one of the first Poles to purchase a home in Lawrenceville. He was a builder by trade. In the area, he built the school on 41st street, now known as the Catalyst building. The Wojciechowski family bought the property in the 1930s, then sold it to its current owner in 2003.

The 1993 film Money for Nothing staring John Cusack was mostly filmed on 42nd and 43rd streets. In fact, the Cusack's character lived across the street from the house. The Lawrenceville House Tour showcased 124 42nd in 2005.
