Early 20th Century Industrial Housing

In 1917 fourteen residences were built on Edison Avenue (now Blanchard.)
Gas lines were installed, the street paved and sidewalks, curbing and gutters provided.
The houses were occupied by workers at Dayton Wright Airplane Factory and adjoining
factory buildings. The Blanchard houses appear to be Sears and Roebuck and Company
mail-order homes. These homes could be ordered from catalogs from 1908 to 1937 and
were shipped pre-cut, numbered and blueprinted to fit together. The homes ranged from
$65 to $2,500. Charles Kettering and Colonel deeds named the other streets in this
neighborhood in honor of famous inventors Charles Steinmetz, Marchese Marconi and
Robert Fulton.
