    George F Granger Home
    House was owned by George F. Granger, Sr., 49 North Maple Avenue, Park Ridge, NJ. The original house had a screen porch that wrapped the front and left side. The driveway and garage were separate from the house, in the back. The home was where Jim and Joan Turse lived as children with their parents and grandparents. The Turse family slept in the attic, and the Grangers had an apartment on the second floor. There was only one bathroom - located between the second floor and the attic stairs (note shade in corner window). No one had much privacy! The car shown parked in the gravel drive is parked approximately in the location of the original water well on the property. The Yeo family lived nearby in the house to the left rear, with the columned porch.

    • Well liked, George served as a volunteer for many community organizations, and served as Chief, Park Ridge Fire Department from 1918 through 1920, and again in 1924.

      *The Ascension Church on South Street in Jersey City was an Episcopal Church that stood until May 17, 1986, when fire severely damaged the Ascension Church. The building was insured for $847,477. On May 17, 1986 the insurance company paid $574,115 the Newark Diocese. The balance was to be paid if construction was completed by Jan. 1, 1989. The Diocese decided not to release the funds, in effect closing Ascension Church.
