Happy Valentine’s Day

219valentineFun trivia: Did you know some of the PHW Revolving Fund properties were once likely given as a Valentine’s Day present from a husband to his wife? On February 14, 1951 Joseph Hodgson “in consideration of natural love and affection” granted his wife Irene Virginia Hodgson joint ownership of five properties, including 219 South Kent Street (pictured), for the rest of “their joint lives,” as well as granting the survivor absolute ownership in the event that one spouse predeceased the other. The other Hodgson properties include three more Revolving Fund properties, 211 South Kent, 124 East Clifford, and 125 East Clifford.
