The project was started about four years ago, and it is located near the intersection of Highway 13 and 65.Highway 13 is presently being rerouted along the northern portion of this view but the new road will not interfere with the role of homes at right. Tribune air photo, taken from plane piloted by Orval Brede of Lead-Aire at Southport, looks toward the south west at the project which numbers about 150 homes. The houses are from the $16,900 to the $28,000 class.
