I like that Downey still has old homes like this one. Built in 1906, it has such character. It is always my hope that older, historic homes like this one will be maintained. Somehow it feels like it adds dimension to our city to have preserved some of these homes.
The City of Downey website talks about turn-of-the-century Downey as the center of business and social life of the area. I wonder what it would have felt like to walk in the neighborhood back then.
