Ever wonder why these classic homes have two front doors? I do, too. Because Google holds all the answers, I threw the question into the search bar. It seems like the consensus is that the second door was to accommodate multiple generations of families living in a home (think The Waltons…Grandma and Grandpa could have their own door), or to facilitate subletting a part of the house for extra income. No matter the reason, it sure adds a lot of curb appeal!
…….But it took 114 years.
Here’s a fun advertisement I found while doing some otherwise unrelated historical research (the real estate ads distracted me):
(St. Louis Republic, June 10, 1900; $5,200)
(St. Louis MLS, ca. 2014; $219,900)
If the original buyer of that home got a loan, they probably paid more interest than a buyer today would, 115 years later!

Granitoid Walks? Telford Streets? What do these terms mean? Anyone?
