A program will be presented on the recently demolished DiBella House, which stood on Bloomfield Avenue near the Annin Flag Factory. Dating from the 1890s, the house was built in the Queen Anne Victorian style.

Society President Robert L. Williams will take you on a photo-walking tour through the house, which he documented before the demolition. He will also display some of the exciting finds that were made during the documentary including the original cast-iron cook stove (above) that was salvaged from the house. Dating from the period of construction of the house, the stove still retains some of its original coal likely provided from the local coal yards of Bahr or DeCamp.
