    • 22/May/2014 12:17:00 I like it, "Fred"! Wow! That was fast. Thank you so much for doing the research and linking to the photos by Universal Pops, which include a richly detailed description of the house. Miss Johnston's photo answers one of his questions--the second door once had glass panes, too. Now to find out more about who lived in this house ... --Helena (LOC), greedy for info

    • 22/May/2014 21:32:32 I can't take credit for the photo and description. Those belong to Universal Pops, whose photo it is. I did the research and discovered that this was the Davidson House. But it is not my photo.

    What a pleasure to see this home in a different perspective! My info on the house name came from an elderly resident of Buckingham Court House. And thanks for the photographic "attention".
