Join us 2-4 pm at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St. $2 donation requested.

Did you know deed restrictions prevent some people on Oakridge Avenue from having a bowling alley in the basement?

This Saturday, Ann Waidelich will describe how neighborhood residents can research their home’s history, and discuss some of the odd restrictions affecting houses in the Schenk-Atwood area. If you have a house with an interesting history, or have found local oddities in your older home, please come and share.

    I wish I could attend… Would it be possible to get the presentation materials, either by email or paper copy? I’d be happy to pick them up at the Goodman Center front desk, and leave a donation.
