Krentel–Faunce House, 319 Hillcrest Ave. (1909)

Benjamin A. Faunce, like his real estate partner and next-door neighbor Jacob Schepers, held several city offices, including mayor of East Lansing from 1929 to 1931. He also served as a local draft board registrar during World War I.

Judging by its name, this house may have been built (or lived in) by one of the Krentel Brothers. (The city’s landmark designation does not explain the Krentel connection.)
