The Widows Walk House


This house on 17th is called the Widow’s Walk house because of a balcony that isn’t there anymore. Mr. Kielbasa says the house was built in the late 1800’s or 1906, but ZIMAS says it was built in 1920 so I don’t know who to believe. I do know that a sketch of the house is on the original dust jacket cover of Henry P. Silka’s San Pedro: a pictorial history. Here’s a scanned picture from the copy my Mom got me for Christmas.
