This plaque was cast prior to the 2011 flood which was much more devastating than the 1969 flood. Several homes were lost in 2011 and some out of State contractors came here to make a fast buck and flipped homes in a very shoddy fashion. Thank God there are still many of the original homes standing and have been restored in a loving fashion. I was told that Eastwood Park was the original "Doctor's Neighborhood" of Minot but I'll do a little more research on it. Here are several of the beautiful homes in Eastwood Park, Minot's only Historical District.
This neighborhood neighbors my own and we are both in the same GREAT school district, Sunnyside. We both also boarder Roosevelt Park. The Northern boarder of Eastwood Park is Central Aveune in Minot which gives it excellent walk-ability into the downtown area. Eastwood Park also is home to two historic places of worship, the only Jewish Temple in a very large area and a Greek Orthodox Church.
With the shrinking number of members of the Temple Beth Israel they needed to sell their building. Fortunately for the members of the Temple the new owners found it beneficial to lease back some time to them.
I don't know if this holds true today or not but back when I was a church consultant I new that the Priest who served this church lived in Dickinson ND and served 3 churches (Dickinson, Wilton, and Minot ND) which adds up to a lot of miles.
My final picture from Eastwood Park is the "false arch" bridge mentioned in the plaque above. This bridge and many other locations in Eastwood Park and neighboring Roosevelt Park make the area a real favorite for photographers of all skill livels.
