My name is Terry Adams and my parents now live in the house at 1209 2nd AVE. Just for the record the picture you have is of 1209 Central and not 1209 2nd. If you like I'd be happy to email you the actual picture.

I loved your blog. I have been researching Dodge City history for some time now, and for obvious reasons, have special interest in the history of the house.

My relation, William Terrel Adams, moved here in 1885.
