College Hill in the Snow #5, John Avenue #2

John Avenue continues to have a wide range of houses, many in the Second Empire style and also some Italianate influences mixed in. Many houses are abandoned, but there is a fair amount of well-maintained houses with their owners holding on.

Then there are the small Modernist tracts mixed in, which is pretty much the only period that has large groups of houses in College Hill. Was this a former orchard or a lumber yard? I don’t know.

Then there is this massive house, which once perhaps held a dozen residents, but is now empty.
