600 Floral AvenueOld Version
Stories:Story 1: The house was the summer home of Walter Clark and his wife who lived in Hyde Park. When he retired he made the house their permanent home. Eventually they moved to Florida. He was the calligrapher for St. Thomas Church.
Story 2: The walnut tree in the side yard is well over 100 years old. Mr. Sommers, who lived in the Park (corner of Marietta and Yale), said he played beneath it when he was a boy. When he told me (Vehr), he was 90 years old.
Story 3: Pearl Zoeller died March 23, 1976.
600 Floral Ave. I am fairly certain this is a Sears Springwood model, but I have not been able to document it through on line resources. The Springwood was only offered for a few years in the Modern Home catalogs, so having one in Terrace Park would be a great addition to your Sears Home inventory. There are photos of the house on Realtor.com from an old listing, and it seems to be a great match to the design. I am hoping you might be able to contact the owner for additional information. The house is missing the decorative details over the front porch, but that is to be expected after 100 years! Also porches have been enclosed and there appears to be an addition added at some point. You can see the little breakfast alcove bump out in one of the Realtor photos. (Sent from Cindy Catanzaro)
