Stories

Story 1   Meghan Mills reported that when they replaced a bathroom wall, they discovered the original construction of the room used plaster, grooved to replicate tiles for the bath surround. Bill Gislason reported to the Mills that at one point, while under the Allison occupancy, there had been a fire in the attic. The Gislasons replaced every upstairs ceiling - which were sagging from the water used to extinguish the fire. Having done some research we now know more about that fire. It happened when Terrace Park residents were still allowed to burn leaves in the fall. Evidently the Kennedys across the street were burning leaves and some blew across the street, found leaves in the Allison's gutters and ignited those leaves. Mr. Allison stored ammunition for hunting in the attic so that had to be hurriedly thrown out or the whole house might have blown up. Fortunately they succeeded in getting the fire out but with considerable water damage which eventually resulted in the sagging ceilings the Gislasons replaced. Paul Kennedy and Leslie Jones remember the fire.
Story 2   Mr. Allison called Don Brown over one time to look at something he had stored in his garage. Above the rafters he has several 2 inch thick unmilled long planks of walnut. This walnut came from trees cut down along Wooster Pike when it was widened. Don couldn't use the walnut and we don't know what happened to it.
