Some of our heritage has been lost to development. East Washington Street used to be a fashionable address. J. Thompson Layman and his family dwelled in this house at 5731 E. Washington Street. Mr Layman was vice president of the Layman-Carey Dry Goods Company. The Layman relatives owned several homes in Irvington including an Italianate villa less than one block south of Washington Street on Audubon Road. This Washington Street home was eventually torn down to make room for a phone company headquarters.
