McDoel History

In 1950

Looking back over the previous five decades from the vantage point of 1950, we can see many ways in which McDoel’s history parallels the course of national events. Wars; economic surges, downturns, and plateaus; increasing reliance on cars; decline of railroads; work patterns shifting, from hard physical labor to more skilled jobs; the emergence of national corporations all these forces helped shape the neighborhood.
