1237 West First Avenue in Grandview Heights, 1918

This seven room brick home at 1237 West First Avenue in Grandview Heights was advertised for sale in the November 1918 issue of the Norwester magazine. The first floor contained a large entry hall, an extra large living room with fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen and a pantry. The second floor had three bedrooms and a bathroom, and the home also featured a finished third floor. The advertisement was placed by the Northwest Boulevard Company with Ben Thompson listed as the president, King G. Thompson as the secretary, and F. A. Shawaker as the sales manager. The Northwest Boulevard Company deeded land to the Franklin County Commissioners to be used as the right of way for the construction of Northwest Boulevard. That street became a direct route from Upper Arlington to downtown Columbus and one of the most important developments in the growth of the village.
