There is a three-story craftsman style home on Park Street on the North Side that is quite a standout.  Per forum rules, I can't post the address since it is a private residence.  Does anyone have any information?

Yes, It was built in the teens.  The owner's name doesn't ring a bell re: local history.

One thing you can do now is go to the library and look in the city directory for the year it was built and learn the name of the first occupant. Then you can learn his occupation and his spouse's name.

 

I'm not sure but directories from that long ago may be on microfiche. It would be nice if all of them could be made digital.

That sounds like a good weekend project! I'll do that and report back.
