Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin Capital Investments, a local real estate development firm, has uncovered a stunning mural dating back to 1895 during a building renovation project in Downtown Tiffin.

The mural was originally an exterior wall of the adjacent building and was discovered while removing plaster on the second floor of 31 Court Street.

The discovery showcases the building’s history and serves as a reminder of the city’s rich heritage. Tiffin Capital Investments has restored and preserved the mural as part of the apartment loft renovation project.

Additionally, a storefront renovation will be completed with the recent approval of the city’s Façade Enhancement Grant program. The renewed façade will improve the building’s exterior appearance and restore 31 Court Street to its former glory.

Kip Kieffer, co-owner of Tiffin Capital Investments, expressed his excitement about the project, saying, “We are thrilled to be part of the effort to preserve Tiffin’s rich history by restoring this historic building. The renovations will continue to enhance the Downtown Tiffin redevelopment and the East Green/Court Street area of town.”

Mayor Dawn Iannantuono also expressed her support for the restoration project, saying, “What a cool discovery to have found without ever realizing it was there! Thank you, Tiffin Capital Investments, for preserving our heritage while investing in our downtown!”

The façade restoration project at 31 Court Street is set to begin soon and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Tiffin Capital Investments is committed to preserving the history and character of Tiffin while investing in its future.
