741 Saline St. Greenfield, Pa., late 1940s

Scalise Residence

"This  picture was taken in the late 40's judging by the car.  741 is the house with the steps in the front coming down the side. My mother tells me that the house to the right (as you look at the picture) belong to freed slaves back in  the early 30's.  There were two families that may have been related to each other, the Finch's and the Jefferson's.  My mother used to play with one of the little boys.  She said her mother would take them over some food and  the welfare bread truck would come along once a week and bring them bread and some milk.  This part of Saline St. is and was known as part of "The  Run".  Eventually some of the streets would come up to Panther Hollow then  up to Oakland.
  The house to the far left is no longer standing but the  other houses are still standing.  The slaves house has been changed and the  front is now a garage.
