Re: “Review: Fat Hen Grocery

Pretty awful. French toast for close to $18 when you add tax & tip. The two of us spent nearly $50 for truly terrible breakfasts. Nothing redeeming about the service, either. All in all--we felt ripped off. Wish I had read the reviews first.

Re: “Hey Blake: What's the Story of the House at 925 Burdette Street?

The building at 925 Burdette Street is a 1920s remodeling by Mr. and Mrs. Donald A. Maginnis Sr. of an existing raised center-hall house. The picket fence with entrance trellis can be seen in photographs of the original house. The Maginnises began to spend most of their time in Covington after 1935; the Williamses and the Maginnises were friends, which presumably accounts for the rental. It's likely that Carl E. Woodward did the remodeling--he was also a friend of the Maginnises, and did the design, in similar Colonial style though a single story, of their Covington house, "Mulberry Grove," still in family hands and essentially unaltered after 76 years. A second small house on the property, also by Woodward, mimics the main house and is also still in use by the family.
