When you think of the 1920’s, it’s hard not to think of the Roaring 20’s. With the home at 610 Trail Avenue being built in 1924, it was constructed during one of the turning points in American history.
Life was simple back then, and many of the modern conveniences we have now didn’t exist. Most people were connected to the outside world through radio as television wouldn’t be available for another 20 years. While this era is mostly known for its fashion, famous dancing, and somewhat excess, over 60 percent of Americans lived below the poverty line.
J. Edgar Hoover was appointed as the head of what eventually became the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Al Capone was paving the way to becoming one of the most notorious gangsters the country had seen. Winnie the Pooh books were favorites among children, and entertainers such as Charlie Chaplin and Duke Ellington were providing people with much-needed distractions from daily life.
Fast forward to current times, and you have a home that has all the charm of this significant era along with modern amenities for ultimate comfort and convenience.

The home is also located close to Hood College, Fort Detrick, and 58-acre Baker Park, where you can partake in tennis, softball, baseball, and swimming. Numerous playgrounds for the kids can also be found here along with concert, theatre, and outdoor events throughout the year.
