Whitlock Avenue in June...1899!

Often we receive groups of family photos, and we can re-construct family life in Montgomery County from years past. Such is the case with the family of Thomas Clark, a tailor who worked in Crawfordsville at the end of the 19th century. In the Clark family photos appears a wood-slat house with a wooden picket fence on the side yard. The home appears to be in construction, with several kegs sitting near the fence and boards stacked nearby. The photograph is dated June 1899, the month that Thomas Clark and Mary (Shoemaker) Clark married. This home may possibly be 512 Whitlock Avenue, Crawfordsville. Does it still exist?
