From the October 31, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"Rapid progress is being made on the housing project which started recently on the tract of land on Sycamore road between Fourth and Seventh Streets. Sixty single unit homes of brick construction are to be built and the project is developing in a rapid manner.
"Brick work has been completed on two of the homes and is nearing completion on a couple of others. Basements have been dug for 25 and foundations have been poured for ten of the units."
