Stevenson, 1985 Park Avenue NE, (D)

Built for the Henry Stevenson family in 1935, this one acre property and house was owned by Bud Stevenson, the second generation, until 2005. Recently remodeled, the house has retained its interior woodwork and room configuration. From the street, the house appears as it did 70 years ago when it joined the older houses on this suburban block.

I am the current resident of this fine house, along with my wife and daughter. I would love to learn more about the history of this wonderful home as well as the story regarding the filbert orchard that was once behind it. The property still retains four of the original filbert trees in the backyard.

We are very happy that the Stevenson house has a new family. The gentleman who saved it gave us a tour through after he restored it and it was a pleasure to imagine the lives there in the past. I know nothing more than what we wrote in the description you read, but there are neighbors who knew the family.I suggest you attend the Lansing Neighborhood meeting and let them know you are interested. They will gladly share their memories.
