Koss Home Then and Now

Louis and Emma Koss moved into their brand new Tudor-Revival home at 5395 Pleasant Run Parkway South Drive in 1930.  Mr. Koss had done well in life as the treasurer of the Capital Machine Company.  This beautifully sited brick house across from Pleasant Run Stream also had (and still has) beautiful gardens.  At some point, the family constructed an addition to the north side of the home.  The historic photograph, taken by Bass Photo (c. 1935), reveals that the charming character of the dwelling remains intact in 2012.

Beautiful windows still adorn the home.

   This beautiful section of Irvington is one of my favorite places to take a walk.  It is easy to see why the Koss family dwelled here for many years.
