Inscription.
Early Tenleytown homes still standing today were built mostly in the 1890s along paths used by farmers and dairymen. The homes in the Grand Road Historic District (pictured here) are typical of these early dwellings, as are the homes along Belt Road in the Mount Airy neighborhood. The Chappell House, an 1890s house formerly located at the intersection of Nebraska Avenue and Albemarle Street, was razed by developers in 1999. A painting of this home by artist Lily Spandorf can be found on the cover of Judith Beck Helm's book on Tenleytown.
