Jacob Kamm Residence, 1946

The Jacob Kamm residence located at SW 14th Avenue and SW Main Street, 1946. The description on the back of the image states, “’Adventure House’ is the new name that has been given to the pioneer Jacob Kamm residence on SW 14th avenue and Main street, and it seems an excellent name for its new role as a community recreation center. The house and its gardens have been lent to the park bureau temporarily for a play center by the school board, which has acquired the big tract of land as site for a new Lincoln High School. It is not expected the building project will get under way for several years.”
