Colored Row Near Hugg Mansion Torn Down

June 17, 1910

From the Democratic Advocate

The row of dilapidated houses on the Hugg farm, commonly known as the Colored Row, has been torn down for sanitary purposes, and instead of “blackberries,” the ground is expected to yield a large crop of potatoes.

Mr. and Mrs. Herbert L. Crook have returned from their “Honeymoon” trip to New York.

Children’s Day services at the Springfield Presbyterian Church were held on Monday night, and in spite of the inclement weather, quite a crowd attended.

Mrs. A. P. Forsythe has been quite sick, is much improved.

Miss Estelle Merceron, who is spending a few weeks with her grandmother, is quite sick.

Miss Emma V. Beach, who had been staying with her sister, Mrs. D. B. Sprecher, has returned to her home in Philadelphia.
