Ernst August and family's Akron Home

Here is a picture from Selma of the family's home in Akron.  Ernst came up from Zanesville before the family. Selma's diary started a couple of days prior to the move in September of 1917.
The address was:  359 Hickory Street.  Remember, you can click on the picture to make it bigger.  I found it interesting how much land surrounds the house.  The house is no longer standing.  A house that is for sale on the street says that it has a view of Cuyahoga Valley Historical Train Line and is a short walk to Cuyahoga Valley Tow Path hike and bike trail.

Houses directly across the street from the vacant lot are valued between $46K and $58K.  These house have huge lots.  I have no idea what the neighborhood is like now.
