Directly across the street you can see 139 East Woodland

As the Griffith, Grant and Lackie Realtors, Inc. archives show, John Gr.iffith handled the sale of this property from the builder Gustavus Anderson to Mr. and Mrs. Lewis T. Greist in 1923, when it was very near completion. James Murphy purchased the original lot, number 89 in the Young Men’s Club subdivision, in 1907. According to telephone books by 1950 Joseph O’Neill was the owner. This English Arts & Crafts cottage is very similar to the house at the other end of Summit, on the northwest corner with Westminster. The O’Neill’s descended from Joseph O’Neill, a tinsmith who arrived in town in 1868 and built a hardware store with related businesses, which lasted for over a century.
