I recently came across an item- a collector plate with the Runnymede residence on it. Do you know if the house still exists? The address does not come up, and I know the theater building on the property was torn down, but could not tell if the original house remains, maybe on Katherine Terrace? I know you have briefly discussed the Houk/Talbott family and thought you may know. Thanks!

Excellent question. I do not know, but next time I talk to my father, I’ll ask if he has any recollection of what happened to the house.

Edit: Found it! Well, the information you requested, not the house. The Talbott home was torn down in 1937, leaving the playhouse, which as you know was used for the Dayton Project. I would love to see that collector plate. I have one in my China hutch that is blue on white and features various Dayton historical sites. It’s a nice reminder of my childhood home.

Thanks for finding out about the house. The plate I saw was on eBay and struck my curiosity enough to do a little search and find your thread. I've included the link for the plate (which found a home with someone else and it includes photos. Thanks again for your help!

Just to let you all know, I will no longer be able to answer questions about Dayton. No worries. I’m fine. Just moving on from C-D to other things in my life after re-evaluating my priorities. I have truly enjoyed this thread, and I hope you all will continue researching Dayton and discovering its fascinating history. Dayton will always hold a special place in my heart. All my best...Randomparent
