464 High Street211 viewsWilliam Rankin Residence (1830)
From "Old South High Street":
Among the first houses built on High Street (MLKJr Blvd) were those of the Longworth family, at Spruce & High Streets and that of the Rankin family at "Hill Park". The Rankin home was purchased and occupied by Edward Rankin in 1833. It stood back of the old Court House and the property ran from High Street on the east to Boston Street on the west. The stately old mansion stood back 500 feet from High Street and was approached by a driveway, shaded by horse chestnut trees. The balance of this estate, some hundreds of acres, was cared for and cultivated like an English gentleman's estate, and in the charge of a Scotchman named Lee.

High & Spruce Streets159 viewsFrom "Old South High Street" 1929

In winter this street was a carnival place. There was little traffic on the cross streets and the pavement was smooth. A little ice and snow made good sleigh-riding, and the owners of fine horses came here to race them with other owners, and they did so from Mercer Street on the north to beyond Spruce Street, and walked the horses slowly back on the east side. The sidewalks were lined with people as on a circus parade day.
