gosnell bend

the corner on the avenue by Dakota street used to be called Gosnell bend. Because the gosnells lived there. the remaining from there to foster park was known as sleepy hollow.
Most of the information I am posting I got at the Museum. Everyone can go there just remember you must have a family name. you can"t look up street names ect.
My landlady at the end of the 50"s was anna mcglinchy. she was one of the first settlers (name on plaque in front of museum) she said the mustard plants grew so high people had tall flags in there yards so you could find there house. she was 89.
