Cinderella's Path--Butler Campus c1928

This lovely walkway meandered through Butler University's Irvington campus. It was dubbed "Cinderella's Path" by some because it ended at South Emerson Avenue near the home of two very beautiful sisters. The stately beech trees and the pathway are now a distant memory as developers added housing onto the site in the early 1940s.  But what became of the sisters?  I suppose I shall leave that up to our budding novelists and poets.
