Description
The Victoria Memorial Home was built to house British veterans of World War I, and was large enough for only 6 or 8 permanent residents. The property was purchased in August, 1920. The home later became the residence of the Bell family, owners of Maiden Lane Kennels on the site; the home was demolished in 1993 and replaced by a 10-home subdivision on 10 acres. Pictured to the right is a railroad trestle built in 1904 for the North Shore Railroad to take trains through he Bothin Tunnel; this train service ceased in 1941.
