Not as inviting in the winter ☃⛄
|Ours at last!!--Mom's writing|
Dad out front getting ready to plant some grass
|Steigerwaldt's back yard today|
There was no fence in the 50's
Our path down would have been to the left of the small pine tree
Thank you Zillow
Then came the day when my neighborhood bestie, Ruthie, and I made our way down the steep slopping hillside behind the Steigerwaldt house. That became our pathway over the years into our enchanted playground. At the bottom of the hill a creek trickled through. Usually, it was not too full of water, unless we had a torrential downpour, although there were a few deep spots. This area was a valley. Our street, Washington Drive up the hill on one side and Harden Drive up on the other.It never occurred to me that this area had any name other than the Woods. When I was blogging about Washington Drive, and did a deep dive into the history of the area, I was surprised to find an old map with the plans for development of North Hills Estates. Our house was just a lot. The woods actually had a proper name, Thompson Drive Park. The creek, nameless, was a feeder stream into Girtys Run at the corner of Rochester Road and Evergreen Heights Drive almost to Babcock Boulevard.
