Here is one final look at the park that once existed on what is now the 200-block of North Wayne Avenue. Though homes were built there ca. 1919, originally this land was set aside as a park for North Wayne residents, with tall trees and two ponds.
Last week's photo showed an almost identical view, before development had begun. In this view the old farmhouse is gone and several new homes on Walnut Avenue are visible in the background.
The large home at 116 Walnut Avenue (just out of view to the right), best known as the residence of the Dr. George Miles Wells family, adjoined the parkland. Later atlas maps show that the park became part of the Wells property before the land was subdivided.
