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.
