Absolom Traver after his marriage in 1825, and a map showing the Traver property in Ann Arbor

The Forgotten Founder

Absolom Traver's name is everywhere on the north side. But who was he?

From the March, 2018 issue

In January 2017, my wife Andrea and I purchased an old Greek Revival home at 1418 Broadway. Years earlier, I'd researched this house for the new edition of Historic Ann Arbor: An Architectural Guide, which I cowrote with Susan Wineberg. It was built by Absolom Traver in the 1830s or 1840s. But I could find very little information on Traver.
