Anecdotal Information:
Interview with Deborah & Edward Hopkins on June 15, 2015: Deborah and Edward Hopkins bought their home in 1995. They have since restored it to a single family home from the three apartments it had been divided into. The house features two doors on the front porch and used to have a front staircase. When they first moved in the house had four bathrooms, which they kept, and two kitchens, one of which was turned into a laundry room. The pocket doors had been sheet rocked over while the house had been apartments. The house was once the office of Dr. Horace Hoskins from 1950 - 1960. There are bullet holes in two of the windows that predate Deborah and Edward’s arrival.
