Did You Know...There is a
great story of a "local boy makes good" in the Garden
Club's Blythewood Scrapbook. It tells of a hard working, family man
who was in the construction business, paving business, and later
bought property which made him very successful. He was awarded the
contract to pave the Lincoln Tunnel, the Holland Tunnel and the
George Washington Bridge while in New Jersey. He later moved back
to Blythewood and continued in the construction business as well as
purchasing property. If you know the man I am speaking of,
please send me an email. The first person to know the answer
will receive a little treat from Town Hall. Thanks for reading the
