3209 Church Street

I have always been interested in the odd spattering of old model homes around South Windsor, which are all related to various subdivision projects of the late 1920’s that were killed by the depression. This one at 3209 Church St., just south of Norfolk.

An ad for the subdivision ran in the Border Cities Star on November 10, 1928 that featured the house.

If the depression hadn’t happened, it would have been a much different Windsor that we would know today.
