History of Elmtree (Yates Thayer) Farm

by Marie Poinan.

September 10, 2013, 7:00 p.m. Greece Town Hall

Yates-Thayer  710 Latta 12-2006

This presentation explores the history of 710-720 Latta Road (the large yellow house next to Fleming Point Senior Living ) as a country estate and a working farm.  Property owners over the past 100 years include an Irish immigrant, the son of a bank president and a coal baron.  Members of the Thayer family will be on hand to contribute memories and answer questions. Vintage photos will show why this property deserves to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.   The Companion book, “A Gentleman’s Country Estate”  will be available to purchase for $7.00.

Marie Poinan is a member of the Greece Historical Society, a local historian and author of eight books on Charlotte and Greece.  For 10 years she was the editor of “Discover the Harbor District” magazine. She also worked on creating the signage for the Bill Davis Overlook.
Reservations are not necessary.  Greece Historical Society members FREE.  A $2.00 donation is appreciated from others.
