Ellenberger Park

The Ellenberger family dwelled in a large Italianate farmhouse on what is today East 10th Street. The family was one of the wealthier families in Warren Township and they became even richer when they sold several acres to the city for a park in the early twentieth century. Besides a beautiful woods, the property also contained a farmhouse (not the Ellenberger house) and some outbuildings. This photo taken on a beautiful winter day in 1922 shows one of the outbuildings along Pleasant Run Parkway. The house faced Ritter Avenue and was south of the stream.
