And here I thought I was being challenging! After posting my quiz question last week asking what the three buildings had in common, I got an e-mail from frequent reader , who said I'd posted the question too close to Easter. Given the proximity to the religious holiday, the idea that the three buildings were related to churches was a clear connection. Pete and both knew that the three buildings were rectories or parsonages. Well done!
The house on 79 Hopson Avenue was the parsonage for the Swedish Lutheran Church, more commonly known as , which was located on Hopson Avenue from 1889 to the 1950s. The house is still standing, as you can see from an image supplied by pete.
The house on 105 Rogers Street was the parsonage for , and in 1921, Rev. John Manter lived there. Though you can see a church in the background of this image, it's not the Baptist church, but Catholic Church! The Rogers Street house is no longer.
The house on 225 Montowese Street was the parsonage for , and was occuped in 1921 by Rev. Clifton H. Brewer. Now, of course, it's the location of , , and other businesses!
