Small Pond--5825 Oak Avenue
In 1947, the Stout Family of 352 Good Avenue built a Goldfish Pond in the northwest corner of the their lot. In the top photo John Stout begins to break ground. In the bottom photo the crew has nearly completed it. In the bottom picture, you can see 5825 Oak Avenue. This late nineteenth-century Queen Anne home is one of the older houses in the area. In 1910, Fred Rubin, son of Jacob Rubin, lived in the house and operated a dry kiln on the property. I am not sure who lived here by 1947, but the home is beautifully maintained in 2011.
