Elliot-Greenwood Home At 9218 Old Main Street Rd.


Recommended Posts

Today I was searching around for old hospitals and came across a very cool address! Thought I would share with HAIF.

I am confused. Did the block 9200 South Main Street (or Main Street Boulevard) exist in the 1920s? I looked on a few maps of the 1920s and 1930s. One map showed South Main Street stopping at Holcombe Blvd, while Old Main Street Road was the only road going further. Other maps showed South Main Street as being a paved roadway. Which one was it?!?!

The address in the thread title could be wrong. This might be 9218 South Main Street.

8 years after, in 1934, the house was occupied by Mrs. Greenwood.  Very interesting, because I think this is the source of the internet's wrong information regarding the location of Greenwood's Sanitarium which is (actually) located at 7308 Old Main Street Road. I believe, to my research, these are different families. I do know there was a James Greenwood Senior, and a James Greenwood Junior. Maybe this is the one of the wives?

According to TSHA, Greenwood, James, Sr. was married to Ella Harris.  Definitely not James Greenwood Senior!
