History

Historic maps and Sanborn Atlases indicate that this particular property was vacant as late as 1918. The original house on the lot was constructed c. 1930; it does not appear on the 1918 Sanborn atlas but does appear on the 1940 historic aerial. This house was demolished c. 2015, and a new house was under construction on the property in mid-2015.
