Throwback Thursday: Clay Homes and Other Low Rental Projects Discussed

Throwback Thursday.  This is a picture of my sister Frances and I about 1946 in the Clay Homes.

The Clay Homes was a low income rental project with, I think, 139 apartments.   It was bulldozed away about ten or fifteen years ago and has been more or less a vacant lot until year ago when yuppie like townhouses were built there.

Of course  now the living spaces are more expensive which means higher taxes.  And less costly on the city also.  Low income housing means more trouble with the law.

It is a win-win situation, unless you are poor.

The Marietta Museum of History will be having a panel discussion on the Clay Homes and other low rental housing projects at their "Remember When" series the morning of Friday, February 23, 2018.  Before you go check with the history museum to make sure of the time and date.

I'll be there either selling apples or stealing hubcaps outside (just joking).
