Town with a Future – Gibson Park Place

This new edition is being advanced by the American Building and Realty Company, located at 511 Chamber of Commerce Building, Columbus. The tract consists of 100 acres platted into 500 lots and is located on the Harrisburg Pike just a short distance from the intersection of Mound Street and Central Avenue. It is within walking distance of the city street car service with five fare and universal transfer. The Grove City traction line stops at the addition. Besides this service, five excellently paved streets lead direct to the state house with no grade crossings and less traffic to encounter than any section of the city. Already a number of homes have been built and other homes are under construction. A rapid growth is anticipated during the coming spring. Gibson Park Place is partially woodland and an ideal home site. This addition is under the management of Mr. E.C. Slack, who has an office at his home, No. 1036 Harrisburg Pike.
