221 North 23rd Avenue East | Architect: William A. Hunt | Built: 1908 | Extant

This stunning Tudor Revival house sprang from the drawing board of William Hunt. Unfortunately, not much is known about Alice Florada, except that she was the widow of mining executive Edward Florada. Paul de Kruif’s Seven Iron Men suggests Edward’s efforts should have kept her comfortable: “This is the Florada whose widow you would have thought Andy Carnegie might have at least pensioned — because Florada’s honest work on the Mis-sa-be has made millions — untold millions — for Andy.”
