Blake Estate, Aspinwall Hill, 450 Washington St.
The estate comprised a large amount of land on the hill above today’s high school. The house itself was located approximately at the southeast corner of today’s Blake Rd. and Gardner Rd. It was owned by two generations of the Blake family and was originally purchased from Lewis Tappan. It was torn down in 1941 and the land developed as today’s Blake Park.
