“Town Tidbits” |Encinitas 1925 | Are You A History Buff?

What was occurring in 1925 around the world?

       F. Scott Fitzgerald publishes The Great Gatsby. Adolf Hitler publishes his personal manifesto Mein Kampf, Calvin Coolidge becomes the first President of the United States to have his inauguration broadcast on radio and the National Football League adds 5 teams: the New York Giants, Detroit Panthers, Providence Steam Roller, a new Canton Bulldogs team, and the Pottsville Maroons to name a few…… Pottsville Maroons?

      AND…  a Leucadia house I sold was built in 1925. This property was in the hub of the agricultural boom and was supposedly built for a Hollywood celebrity. Were you aware that Encinitas has their own historical society and research center in the 1883 schoolhouse?  Spend just a few hours and you will be amazed by the rich history Encinitas has to offer offer.

       Back to the 1925 Tudor style home in Leucadia…. after showing it to the buyers several times, having a home inspection done, and other inspections, we finally made a discovery…. it had a hidden bathroom!   It was outside of the house!  Look at the photograph and determine where it is!

       Would you like to find your own historical home in Encinitas or other areas of San Diego?
