407 Western Old VersionPhotosDeeds
Story 1: The Sommer family (308 Marietta) for many years also owned a lot at the Wooster Pike end of Western Avenue (407). When Chuck Rockel was Mayor of Terrace Park, Lillian S. Atchley, next door at 409 Western had quite a controversy with the Sommer family about whether this was a buildable lot. She wrote an entire letter concerning the history of the lot, which includes the fact that quite a bit of the original lot was removed when Wooster Pike was widened in 1939. It looks as if the Tigners may have been going to build a house there in 1979 but one was not built until 1989. See letter on file at TP Historical Society.
