The Electric House

Built in 1925 by the Reaume Company, Windsor’s pre-eminent developers of the pre World War II era… The showpiece of the the Pillette Road, Ford City sub-division… The Electric House!

The Reaume Company ran many ad’s for this subdivision in the Border Cities Star, including several full page ad’s like this one from September 1925…

I like how one of the selling points is the “new streetcar line definitely promised for this fall”. 🙂

After a bit of digging, I found that the house is still standing. After renumbering, 1434 Pillette became 1932 Pillette.

It was a nice surprise to find the house still there and in decent shape for being 83 years old…
