The Hoene-Werle House in the Manchester neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was built in 1887 as a double house with a courtyard in the rear and a complex molded brick and millwork cornice in the front. German immigrants Herman H. Hoene, who owned a retail piano store, and Fred C. Werle, a druggist, originally owned the house.[2]

The house was abandoned then acquired by the city in the 1970s and then bought in the 1980s and restored. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. It is also part of the Manchester Historic District[1]
