The family eventually moved to Iowa where Mr. McNaught headed up the Anti-Saloon League in that state. He must have been horrified in 1933 when the country repealed the 18th Amendment and legalized the sale of alcohol once again.
Historic images from the McNaught family taken around 1922 show Ethel and her daughters, Esther and Doris Lucine standing on the sidewalk in front of 330 South Downey Avenue. Behind the family, you can see a small woods that still exists just south and east of 317 South Downey Avenue. You can also see a mirage of 317 South Downey Avenue. This beautiful home was occupied by the Kingsbury family in 1922. Edward Kingsbury was a manufacturer of fertilizer. His wife Mary and children, Virginia and George, also dwelled in the home. Did they know the McNaughts? Did they agree with their views on alcohol? Nearby on the Butler University campus, there certainly would have been a few students who might not have seen eye-eye with their Anti-Saloon League neighbors.
