Welcome in Bro. Bob !!! Thanks for telling us about your time in the Manor...it is something beyond words for those that have lived there. No matter where they go after living there it always has a special place in their hearts. One on here only lived there about a year and was 4 yrs. old and still thought about it and he also provided us with a lot of the pictures we have on here. If you have any Manor pictures feel fre to share if you want to, we all love to look a them....we also have a page on Facebook under Stratford Manor/ eastwood Village if you want to come to it. Anyway so glad to see you on here and come back and be with us.....Hyden

Hi Bro Bob,
My husband and I went to St. Anthony's too. I lived in the Manor and my husband lived in Madisonville. Do you remember a "Mark Griffith"? When did you go to St. Anthony's?

I hope to always be able to check in on this City Data and hope someone has posted something for us all to share, hopefully we will get some new ones to comment too !! Check back with you all, Hyden
Hyden, you made an interesting point about being the first time of having friends and going to school. As for my own circumstances, I had friends and went to school elsewhere before ever moving to the Manor. And yet, the place left a huge impression on me. The only thing I can think of is that it may have been a particular stage in life for me. I'm sure there must be all sorts of other reasons for other people who lived there. All I can really say is that the one thing we all have in common is the Manor. Why that particular place has left such a huge impression on so many people is a mystery to me.

Default Stratford Manor = Community

Above everything else, I think Stratford Manor was successful in fostering a sense of "community" in the residents; in the way that it was designed coupled with the era in which it existed. Generally speaking, the 50's and early 60's were very "neighborly" compared to later on, and the design of Stratford Manor promoted this feeling to the max. It was a self-contained community in many ways. And as kids, I think our minds were much more tuned in to the whole "Manor" experience. I'm not sure how the adults felt living at the manor. Too bad we can't get the "take" on the Manor experience from our parents who lived there as adults. My mom's 80 and of sound mind, but she tends not to remember the same things I do. LOL.

David, I really like how you stated this.......and your right....I wish I could ask my parents too...I know that when my parents moved out to Loveland and bought their first home...Mom wasn't crazy about it...she loved her home but wasn't used to not knowing her neighbors.....she knew the family next door because Dad worked with the man of the house, but that was it....and usually because of children she got to know some of the parents, they had a front patio added so they could sit out front rather than in the back surrounded by fences. She was really unhappy when she first moved there but a few years before she passed away she was aquainted with a few of the women on her street and they became dear friends to her and our family.....always checking on dad and making sure he was alright or needed anything. I guess it just didn't have that Manor feel she was missing !! You can't get that anywhere else.......Hyden

As I have said before I think 'The Manor" was pure Americana.. Even better than Ozzie&Harriet...ha ha...The majority were hard working young families making a concerted effort to get to "Middle Class"... I remember in the 50's the alley parties that every family took part in...I remember jitterbugging with my mom Bless Her Soul... That was a good time and place!!!!!!

We never had any alley parties over on the northeast side of the Manor during the time we lived there, but I agreee that the entire Manor was indeed a very friendly and neighborly place.
