Woodland & Davis

In 1913 local residents approached the city about making the site of the Villa Maria a park (the St. Matthews Church was later built on this very large piece of property -- see the plat for 1895).  When the city refused to create the park Mr. Richard Mayland of Woodland purchased the land to divide it into residential lots. Mr. Mayland was by profession a tailor, but with this action he became a real estate tycoon.  I have this information from a sharp eyed State Street resident who noticed this bit in the Pantagraph on December 15, 2013!
