    Here is the Smith house as shown on the Sanborn map of 1925. It looks like it was actually left on a wider lot when the surrounding lots were platted.

    And here it is on the 1950 Sanborn. In the interim, the eastern portion of the farmhouse appears to have been removed, and another house has been wedged in to the same lot next to it. Presumably the one that's still there today. Interesting that they just didn't tear down the older house entirely.

    Looks like 2015 Clements.

    What did we decide? Was the house moved to its current location? Is it oriented to face north or to align with the former Glendale/Indiandale Rd? Was it rotated to fit in the later lot boundaries shown on the subdivision plat?

    In the 1876 atlas, I suspect his was the circled house since the western half of section 7 was later sold to E Ford. Did the mapmaker neglect to show the proper orientation of the cabin, or was it later moved?

    A few other tidbits from that 1876 atlas: a toll gate on Grand River at W Chicago, outside the settlement of Howlett; a gas well just to the west; a tavern at Oakman and Grand River; and farther up, a hotel with the Greenfield Post Office, probably in the lobby.

    Anyone know whatever happened to this place? Was a buyer ever found?

    ^^^ Wish we could find a buyer, but that's a rough area. Otherwise board it up lest a body be found inside!
