I am a local real estate agent in Youngstown, OH
I will be listing the 260 Tod Lane Estate in August. I am trying to find out who may know who originally built this home for Philip & Clara Wick around 1915 (according to the 1915 census) or who the architect was. (It appears that perhapst this "great plat" was originaly owned by Philip Wick and Charles N. Crandall). It will be listed as a special historical home with many original features still in tact. Upon checking with the Mahoning Valley Historical Society, I have been told that the data is limited with nothing indicating who the architect was at the time of construction. Nothing shows up for a construction permitt in Mahoning County. Perhaps Trumbull County may be an outlet to consider as this area was stil Youngstown Twp. and not Youngstown City. I do know it was sold to Bernard & Sabina Hirshberg around 1918 and then transferred to several additional Hirshberg decendants after Bernard's death in 1930 or 31. His decendants moved to the westcoast(where they all eventualy passed on).
However, it was sold to Anita A. McKelvey (DOB: 02/17/1909 & DD: 09/05/1995) in the 1940's and several other owner's in later years.
Would love to learn who built this home so it can be properly postioned in the market place, showcase this estate and tell the real "story" properly so as to do this wonderful estate real justice. It still looks great after all these years! This estate is an intricate part of the history of the "Crandall Park-Fifth Avenue Historic District" as it was the very first home built. The Bert Printz mansion was next. These 2 homes are very significant to this district.
Thank you in advance to anyone who can shed some light.
