The Grandview Heritage Group is soon to announce the local buildings that will wear one of our Centenary Celebration signs this year. This is the fourth year we’ve done this, at twenty-five houses a year, and so we will soon celebrate the first one hundred of the houses we have recognized!
Every year (2012, 2013, 2014) we produce a map showing each of the houses along with a brief occupancy and architectural history. Today it was my job to write the little bios for the first batch of this year’s houses.
Delving into building permits, City directories, census records , amps, and the like was just the ideal thing for me to do in the shadowed coolness of the room while the sun blazed outside.
