Fairview Heights

Fairview Heights [1]

This new resident-section lies just north of the Theological School and extends from Chestnut Street north to Mill Run and is bounded on the east by Morgan Street, and on the west by Porter Street. This section was purchased two years ago by the Graham Land Improvement Co., which immediately started to clear the land and build houses. They now have 10 houses on the plot; six of them have been sold and the owners are living in them. The streets are all parked, beautiful shade trees set out, sidewalks down, sewer, water and gas throughout the section. There is no place in the city more desirable to live and no place where property is more likely to advance.

Meadville's steady increase in population has made a demand for additional homes and perhaps no other place is more convenient to the business section and car line, than the recently plotted 20 acres on north side of Chestnut St., above Elizabeth Park. This is on high ground, away from the smoke of factories, in the built up section, with water, gas and city conveniences. Several homes have been erected here and the entire plot will soon be improved. The officers are P. B. Graham, Pres.,; G. W. Trawin, V. P.; S. P. Schiek, Sec-Treas.; Manley 0. Brown, Atty.
