Eric & Mike with War Party Paranormal Talk Show will be joined by fellow team mates to talk about their findings at The Walsh-Osterhoudt House, This house is among the oldest residential structures remaining in South Florida and is significant because it was built during the early agricultural development of western Broward County. The main part of the house appears much the same today as it did when it was built. The house was built for Colonel Charles A. Walsh and his wife, Katherine, c.1912. The Walshes moved to Davie around that time and Charles became President of Wacico Groves Corporation, the developer of the pioneer Everglades orange. Katherine was the organizer and first president of the Broward County Federation of Women's Clubs and the first president of the County Welfare Board. She was also the sister of Davie pioneer Helen Viele, who with her husband Harry, owned and operated Viele Groves. The Walshes also helped to organize the Davie Community Church (1916). The Walshes occupied the home until 1932 (both died that year). Then in 1955 the residence was bought by the Osterhoudt family. The Osterhoudt family is important to the Old Davie School because Betty Osterhoudt taught first grade there for 25 years. She had lived within walking distance of the school throughout her career until she retired in 1976. After her retirement, Betty served as a docent and was the acting school teacher for the school tours when the school reopened as a museum in 1997.
