Park Road in 1907

400 block of park Road 1907

The 400 block of Park Road has been active on the real estate market lately. In conducting research on the block, I discovered a real estate add published in The Evening Star on May 29 1907, highlighting the block with the above image at the head of it (full add below). The image shows Park Road, with Warder Street to the right and the left. What I can tell you is that the houses on the 400 block of Park Road were constructed in 1906 by Middaugh and Shannon, who eventually built 142 houses in Park View. Due to the dates of construction and the scale of the development, these houses can truly be considered the formal birth of the Park View neighborhood we know today.
