The 8th of 125 things about Thurston House, us and the City of Maitland…all in honor of our 125th anniversary next July of the founding of Maitland and the completion of Thurston House.
The 2nd family who owned this home were the Hirsch’s – James & Anna. They were originally from Glencoe, Illinois where he served as mayor. They were very well-to-do and neighbors remember them being chauffeured around in a Cadillac limousine, complete with built in bud vases on the doors. Can’t you just picture that?
