My mom and her family grew up in Campbell Hill. It's great to learn more about the history of that neighborhood and it's surrounding areas! Thanks for the article!

I gave a tour of the Honeymoon Yard area to a friend yesterday and noticed another building in disappearing Campbell Hill has been recently demolished:
