Story 1   Our historic home was constructed in an Arts & Crafts style, and sits on one of the more private and desirable ledge lots in the Village. It is located at the end of the Myrtle Ave. cul de sac. The house has a very Michigan cottage/lodge like feel, and is nestled on one full acre, which actually feels like fifty, considering its unobstructed views, and private access to the Terrace Park Nature Preserve - (Miami Grove). This home mirrors the secluded & quiet life of the country, all while being located a mere block from the Terrace Park Elementary School! Pulling into the driveway reveals only the original part of the 1916 structure, inside and to the rear are quite another story. Our home has four bedrooms and three full baths: Two bedrooms & two baths are on the 2nd Floor, and two bedrooms & one bath are on the 1st Floor. While careful attention has been given in maintaining & upgrading many of the home's original characteristics, a major addition not only added a completely new eat-in Designer Kitchen, but a family Great room (with cathedral ceilings) as well as a breakfast Sunroom (with vaulted ceilings). The first floor also has a charming Living Room and an open formal Dining Room. The basement has a tastefully finished living area, a meticulous workshop and an additional half bathroom. Built to the side of the detached oversized two car garage is a modern, yet rustic two story Office/Studio (added 2001) complete with skylights, vaulted ceilings, and spiral staircase. Outside, a side deck and two large split-level decks (with stairs leading down to the bottom of the woods below) gives one the feeling of living in their own 'wide open' tree house. The yard is landscaped and well maintained.
Story 2   Marcy Clark was at one time a teacher at the Terrace Park school.
Story 3   Woodruff C. Clark was born 1 January 1905 and died 9 February 1978, aged 73 years. Marcella Marcy N.

Clark, died 26 January 1975, aged 88 years(?)
Story 4  

The Clark's daughter, Jayne, first married Young. She later married into the Aglamesis family. Stan Miller knew and admired Thomas D. Aglamesis and copied an interesting article from The Memoirs of the Miami Valley 1920 concerning him:

Proprietor of the Metropolitan Confectionery Company, 3046 Madison Road, Oakley, is one of the energetic business men of this locality, where he has built up a substantial enterprise and has gained general public confidence. He was born in Cosma, Greece, May 15, 1884, a son of Demetrius and Pangotha (Kontaxis) Aglamesis, natives of the same country, where both still reside. Thomas D. Aglamesis was educated in the public schools of Cosma, where he assisted his father in the vineyards until coming to the United States, 1903. Locating in Cincinnati, he secured employment with James Coston, with whom he learned the confectionery business and after a little more than six years, in 1910, established the Metropolitan Confectionery Company, in partnership with Nicholas Aglamesis, at No., 4631 Main Avenue, Norwood, for the manufacture of ice cream and candies. In 1916, Mr. Aglamesis disposed with his interest in this business, and, locating at Oakley, established his present business at 3046 Madison Road. Mr. Aglamesis purchased the lot and erected the building, in 1915, this being used for his own purposes. He does a large business of a retail nature, manufacturing his own goods and selling candy, ice cream, etc. His business has grown to such extent where he now employs four people. His establishment is splendidly equipped, and includes a modern soda fountain, ornate fixtures, etc. Mr. Aglamesis is an active member of the Oakley Business Men's Club and has an excellent standing in business circles. He is a Republican in politics, belongs to the local lodge of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, in which he has numerous friends, and is a member of the Greek church.
