Profile Information

A little about me:
I grew up in the neighborhood. Lived from age 5 to 12 at the Victorian house located adjacent to the Arco gas station on Hoover and 23rd st. We then moved to an apartment over on 24th st and Union. I love the neighborhood and now that I am a full adult I am interested in its history. I want to educate myself more so that I may help in restoring it and preserving it.
