VINTAGE POINT: Farmington Foursquare

IMG_2147

This ca. 1920 photo shows the Foursquare house (23801 Farmington Road) at the northwest corner of Oakland and Farmington, with the Salem United Church of Christ in the background. The home and the church look very much the same today, but the little field of corn has long since been replaced by the Collinwood apartments.
