Vinyard, 3183 Center Street NE, (D)

The earliest owner, but perhaps not the first, was Dr. Vinyard for whom the street is named. His widow lived there in 1956 when the present owner purchased the house. Nina Bilyeu, now a widow herself, remembers when the open acres across Center Street were fields with grouse and pheasant. Originally, the 10 acre Vinyard property extended to “D” Street. The floor of the former barn is now a patio for the second house behind the Bilyeu property.
