Fallsmead@50 Fun Facts
How Many Kids Live in Your House?
Posted on September 10, 2018 4:50 PM by Melani Miller Harig
Can you imagine having 8 kids living in your Fallsmead house? Back in 1974 (the first year all 265 original Fallsmead houses were included in a neighborhood directory), there was one house with 8 kids living in it, and 47 houses with 4 or more kids; this year, one house has 5 kids living in it, and only 5 houses have 4 or more kids. More surprisingly (at least to me!), 88% of houses in 1974 had kids living in them; in 2018, only 53% of Fallsmead homes have kids living at home according to the directory.
