November 26, 2010The NPR Archive – Jan’s Neighborhood In 1950 & Now!
Late Happy Thanksgiving, everyone-who-celebrated it! I’m doing a bit of throwback today since it is a holiday weekend. This post is from September 29, 2009. Enjoy! Sablemable aka Jan
I live in a subdivision called Fair Plain, which was developed beginning circa 1949. I chose a few structures that were featured in our local newspaper from 1951 and 1952. All are in walking distance from my home.

The first elementary school constructed, Fair Plain West, was built in 1952. I have a soft spot for FPW, as it was the last building I was assigned to as secretary before I retired from the school district.

Sadly, I could not find anything about my current home that was built in 1955 by Joe Sorce, but here is a recent photo of it.
I hope you enjoyed a brief tour of my neighborhood and its classic MCM architecture!
