Marble Cliff Demolished

Fifth Avenue
1. John E. Price House: 2101 W. 5th Avenue: Around 1885-Before 1953: Unknown reason for demolition. The site had development by 1953, so the house was gone before then. Records show only a garage on the site as far back as the mid-1930s, so the house could’ve been gone long before the 1950s. The development shown in the new photo was built in the 1960s, but was not in the same location as the house. The railroad tracks that ran at the front of the property (and just out of sight in the old photo) still exist, although the orientation has changed.
