Hanestown Houses

"Neat, small houses surrounded the giant mill on South Stratford road." (From Winston-Salem, A History, by Frank V. Tursi.) The mill is gone, but the houses are still there. Historic photos from the 1930s were downloaded from Digital Forsyth. One interesting aspect of this neighborhood not captured in these photos is that the neighborhood is mixed zoning. This has created a salon district (hair and nail) unlike anything else the blog has ever seen - on some blocks every house has been converted to a salon.
