Story 1: Deeds list Harry T. Crane as owning lots 20-23 from 11 April 1890 until 19 May 1893 when he sold to Mary Greeno and Lewis Gatch.    This may have been where Lewis and Mary first lived after they were married, renting from Harry T. Crane.  We do not know when that house was built or who first lived there.  According to an obituary for William R. Bass (see 322 Harvard), "The manager of the Avondale Club [baseball] was the late Harry Crane."  The Gatch family is involved with both 322 Harvard Avenue & 614 Wooster Pike.  Bill Bass married Myra Greeno.  According to the records of Greenlawn Cemetery, Milford OH, Henry Clay Crane was born 12 August 1869 and died 15 August 1930, aged 61, buried in Section 15 of Greenlawn Cemetery, Milford OH, C. T. Johnson Funeral Home.  Are Harry T. & Henry Clay the same person or not?  Lewis and Mary Greeno Gatch are also buried in Section 15 of Greenlawn Cemetery.  Henry C. Crane is listed on Elm in the 1930 Census with his wife Mary.  Census was take April 8.
Story 2: Lewis & Mary (Greeno) Gatch had a home at 614 Wooster.  Their 2 children were born there: John (1893) & Loren (1891).  They moved to 415 Elm. (Information gathered by Edna Stites from Ann Gatch of Terrace Park, daughter of John, granddaughter of Lewis & Mary.)  The oak tree between the PNC Bank and Bill's Service Station stood beside the Gatch home (Lewis Gatch 2004).  PNC Bank replaces the frame and stucco Gatch house.
Story 3: Jim Finley also lived at 614 Wooster and was the Terrace Park train station master.  He also raised dogs. (Information gathered by Edna Stites from Ruth Clayton, Terrace Park resident, who attended Terrace Park School.)
Story 4: Oscar Ziegler owned "Terrace Park Flowers", a flower and garden shop at 614 and 620 Wooster Pike:  listed in Terrace Park phone books 1965-66 at 620 Wooster; 1967-68 at 614 Wooster; 1969-70 at 620 Wooster.  He lived at 317 Given. (Information gathered by Edna Stites from Shelba Mitchell Norman [Mrs. Clifford], of Milford, who worked at the shop.)  1957 TP High School Yearbook has an ad for TP Flowers.
Story 5: William J. Oatley - 614 Wooster.  Butcher shop.  Catered one of Ruth Clayton's daughter's weddings in 1977 - "the best ham" the guests had ever tasted!  
Story 6: Bill Krummert Sr. (see 620 Wooster) remembers a big barn behind the Flower Shop which was used to store builders' supplies.  Bill says Oscar Ziegler lived in the Flower Shop building and later owned and lived at 317 Given Road.
Story 7:      1973 - burning permit and condemnation from Terrace Park Fire Department records: three barn type buildings (at owners request).  600 block of Wooster: old Zeigler flower store property, 4 buildings. Fire Department recommended demolish or board up. 
     Also 1973 Wooster Pike between Elm & West. Corp line - fire training.
Story 7: In the 1970s Central Trust Bank was built.  Its name was later changed to PNC Bank.  PNC Bank to close in Terrace Park (at this address) in February 2007.
Story 8: Village Views article October 1985: "Objections raised by neighboring residents meantime have raised a block to proposals for expansion of the Wooster Shopping Center by addition of a medical center/pharmacy after numerous modifications of the original plans." "Objectors to the shopping center expansion said a drainage problem already exists at the rear of the property and raised questions concerning sewage disposal.  They noted also that it had apparently been overlooked that part of the expansion plan involves use of land zoned Residence A."  See also articles in Village Views before and after October.  By December approval was given to a simplified shopping center.  It was also stated, "With some questions remaining, the old toll house adjoining is likely to be razed."
