Marggi, 735 Ratcliff Avenue SE, (D)

This Craftsman house may have been one of the first erected on a forested hill, part of the Donation Land of Fabritus F. Smith and platted as lot # 5 of "Smith Fruit Farms" before 1929. The first owner is unknown, but by 1943 it was the residence of the Marggi family, remembered by neighbors of that time. The houses along this gravel road were few and provided a country atmosphere in this neighborhood outside the city.
