Update: The house above has been demolished.
Ferry Street heads southeast at a diagonal down towards the river, but has been cut off by Interstate 70. The remaining houses are a cross section of Hyde Park.
There are some extremely old houses, such as the wood frame alley house below.
And there are some sad recent fires that have gutted houses.
Update: I revisited the apartment complex in December of 2022.
We looked at this apartment complex back in April of 2015.

Dear Mr Naffziger
My name is Kevin Kulage, I’m sorry I was unable to attend your event at the history museum today. My family had deep roots in the College Hill neighborhood. My great grandfather and brothers started the College Hill Press Brick Company. They lived in the Kulage House at 1904 College Ave. My great great uncle Joseph Kulage, was also an inventor. He invented two brick making machines, and also invented one of the earliest automobiles. He and his wife Margaret most of their wealth to the Catholic Church. My great grandfather, Frank died when my grandfather was just 4 years old. Never knew how, my grandfather didn’t talk too much about his youth. Maybe you can let me know when your next event is happening? Sorry once again for missing today.
Kevin, please drop me a line at naffziger (at) gmail (dot) com. I would love to talk to you!
