1005 North Buchanan, 1980 The property at 1005 North Buchanan appears to have been part of the Durham Consolidated Land and Improvement Company subdivision of land north of Markham Ave. However, the house appears older and larger than most of the houses around it; curiously, it doesn't appear to be present on the 1913 Sanborn maps, although it appears older than that. Researching the house is difficult, but I wonder if it was moved to this location, or if it was a main house on a larger estate, retained in the subdivision. It is currently a Bob Schmitz rental house.
