The history of our neighborhood, The Neighborhood in the Park,
was written in 1979 by Jane R. Hofmann with assistance from Virginia
Guest Ferriday, Mary Alice Hutchins, and Chet Orloff. It covers the period from the earliest land claims in the mid 1800s through the late 1970s. It describes the first residential development, the history of Washington Park, and includes accounts of cable cars on Kingston! The history includes a listing of all houses built in the neighborhood up to 1979, their original owners, architects, and builders.
