McMillan Park

McMillan Park has played an important role in the life of Bloomingdale, Stronghold, and other adjacent neighborhoods since its inception.  Some long-time residents recount their experiences: Ben Franklin played there as a child, Ella Walker picnicked with her family by the water, and Frank Braxton received military training "on top of all those sewer tops" as a high-school student prior to World War II.  (11/13)
