This entry, like all the original entries, was downloaded directly from the NRHP database, a government project. File the typo under the heading "Your tax dollars at work."

Check the satellite imaging. The pool may be the one in the NE corner of the estate. It would appear that there was more land to it at one time but they sold some for the small subdivision now on the West and North.

I can't find any mention of a pool, but my childhood memories are about spending Sat. mornings in the Weckbaugh pool, which was opened to neighborhood children, before it was cleaned in the afternoons. Can someone verify this?
