Despite being a railroad division point, and a center for agriculture and timber, there were still plenty of wide open spaces. The home at 619 Second Ave. W. proves the point, as it was the only house on the block when it was built in 1909. And its well-preserved farmhouse style architecture certainly fits, as the home was once surrounded by little more than nearby horse stables and open fields.
