The rare and disappearing Cape Cod

The Yalecrest Neighborhood, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, continues to experience tear downs. Most recently Yalecrest lost a 1937 Cape Cod. At 3%, Cape Cod types of homes are rare in Yalecrest. Three additional and original, contributing status Cape Cods have been lost as well, dating back to 1935. Since this plan is rare, the four that have been torn down result in a 9% loss of our Cape Cods. It is unfortunate that this type of home continues to disappear, especially since it is rare to begin with.
