An Interesting Historical Remnant In The Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Headquarters...
Photo and blog post by John Hoff
I actually took this picture several weeks ago, but there's one great thing about historical writing...
History isn't going anywhere. What's the hurry?
In the attic of the building Hawthorne Neighborhood Council uses as its headquarters (2944 Emerson Ave. N.) there are some words painted on the wall, apparently in German or some Scandinavian language.
The words--what's left of them--appear to be Bible verses. Naturally, we know this house is associated with the church next door and I assume at one time it was a rectory or a parsonage.
I figure at some point in the not-so-distant future the wall will get patched up, so I took pictures to make a record of what was up there.
