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.”

Kamm House, 1950

The Jacob Kamm house is shown here on its move from its original site near SW 14th and Salmon, to where it now rests on SW 20th Avenue. This view is west on Salmon Street. The Zion Lutheran Church can be seen in the distance on the right, and the cluster of homes on the left of the image is still intact along SW Madison at 18th. This is another great photo sent by Bud Holland.
