Description: 3 story dark red brick "Four Square", hip roof with front dormers,  porch across the front.   The 1999 addition is set back so it does not destroy the original front line of the house.
Story 1: Several Christopher families lived in the Miami/Oxford area of Terrace Park.  This Christopher family rented out their house from the late 1930s until 1957 when the Campbells bought it. 
Story 2: J. W. Sibleys Sub-division of Lots 3 & 4 Camden City (same for all 300, 400, 500 Miami).
Story 3:      Article on Richard S. Griffith in T. P. Historical Society file.
     Information from St. Thomas Church - Richard Sampley Griffith was born 23 August 1927 and died 16 May 2008, aged 81 years.  Natalie Hambly Griffith was born 27 February 1926 and died 14 June 2005, aged 79 years.  They are both buried in St. Thomas Church Columbarium, Section 1, Niche 11.  (Another source says he died 26 July 2008 and she died late July 2005)
Story 4:  Mrs. George Jaap - president TP Garden Club 1936-38 (see below)
Story 5: From a message from Ray Worseck I conclude that Robert Carl & Gladys Vogt were probably the renters here in 1942.  The 1940 Census shows the Jaap family still living here as they did in 1939 (according to the map) so the Vogts must not have moved here until after that census was taken.  Ray says, "Mr. Vogt was my father's boss in the Army Engineer Corps in Cincinnati.  My mother's diary records a visit to these Vogts in Terrace Park in late 1940.  My sister visited Terrace Park in the late 1980s.  When she told my mother where she was going, our mother said Oh, that's where Carl Vogt lived."  Using the 1944 City Directory, the Cincinnati Public Library confirmed that the Vogts lived in Terrace Park.  By 1954 the Vogts had moved to Milford and Mr. Vogt was working for a private engineering firm.  We do not know if these Vogts are related to Robert and Dorothy Vogt who later lived on Princeton.
