Hettie Trimble Property

Article about Hettie's property in West Chester. Undated newspaper clipping

Early Owner of Sharpless Street Tract is Recalled

A local resident recently inquired concerning Miss Hettie Trimble, who half a century or so ago, owned a large property on the south side of Sharpless street, and extending from High to Church street, where she maintained nursery for the cultivation for the big city markets of high-grade grapes. For some years, along the High street boundary was a beauteous osage-orange hedge, that was removed, about a half century ago when was erected the row of three-story brick residences, with front porches and lawns, from number 600 to 614. After the death of Miss Trimble, the property was bought by Mr. and Mrs. Isaac G. Reynolds, who constructed a beautiful home with all the modern improvements and conveniences. Miss Trimble was a great aunt of Mrs. Reynolds, and also Charles and George K. McFarland.

Charles T. McFarland bought a portion of the Trimble property, along South High street, and thereon erected a commodious home; after his death the home was occupied for a time by his two sons and Miss Emily Haas, for several years, after which it was purchased by Mrs. Charles E. Woodward who made it the home of herself and daughter, Mrs. Florence W. Talbot, both now deceased.

Note - this real estate, with the dwelling containing fourteen rooms, was sold at public sale, on February 2d, for $17,500, to the Bible Presbyterian Church of West Chester.
