The center, to be called the Easter Seals⁄Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center, is expected to open in September 2007. It is anticipated to serve more than 15,000 children, adults and seniors with disabilities, and their families and caregivers over the next decade. The center will help those with disabilities live independently and be successful, Reeves said.I've always been intrigued by this particular plot of land. It looks like just an overgrown, undeveloped lot, but if you look closely, it appears that there used to be something located there in the distant past. I certainly don't recall anything there but trees during my lifetime. There are some old steps with rusty handrails that lead to the top of the wooded area. I know I have a lot more questions than answers lately, but does anyone have any insight into the history of this particular lot?
