Central Ave. residences

central_1200

This is a view of residences on Central Avenue, probably from the 1920s. The picture was provided to us by Henry Fletcher. A larger version is here. In the background is the old wooden Methodist church, which was located one lot south of the current First United Methodist Church. The two-story home below and to the right of the church was the residence of Menno C. Brake, father of Menno O. Brake who also lived in New Port Richey after he retired. The photo below shows the home, at 5843 Central Avenue, in 2016.
