Before Shotwell Park

Skan West Side House

Ken Wooster comments on this postcard from the collection of Palmer Simmons: “It was a tough job to identify, but I finally tracked it down as ‘The Terrace.’ That was the home of Josiah Jewett that was purchased in 1934 in order to make room for Shotwell Park.”  (To be precise, the house was sold to the Village, after Josiah Jewett’s death, by Nathan Jewett who was the executor of Josiah’s estate.) Thank you, Ken!
