Newly renovated colonial w/a 2 bay barn garage and workshop above, for the man who only comes in the house for dinner and naps. As the final days of Calvin Coolidge's 2nd term wound to an end, and only 1 yr before the start of the Great Depression, a home was built, high on a hill in the Ellet Distrct, mere months before a deal was struck to annex Ellet to the city of Akron. 22 yrs later the current Ellet High School would be built on the same street just blocks away, so that the family residing at 124 Woolf Ave could stand on the covered porch, high on that hill and watch their kids walk to school, sounds of doo-wop music and dreams of fighting in the Korean War atwitter in their heads, much like their brothers before them who became heroes of the Great War, supremely commanded by the soon to be next President of our USofA, Dwight D Eisenhower. 88 yrs after a dream was first realized, a new man has climbed that hill and renovated that home, so that a whole new set of kids could walk safely to school and dream of their own bad music and foreign conflicts. This man re-sided the home in vinyl & added gutters & downspouts. He partially tore off and made new the roof. He poured concrete on the drive, not dissimilar to that used by Eisenhower to create our current highway system. He added a deck and 2 new garage doors. But this man's vision didn't end with the exterior, he would renovate the kitchen & bath, carpet the bedrooms, and refinish the hardwoods, this man was a hero.
