    My father, Willis Aldridge had this home built in 1951-52. Charles Knott was the Architect and it was similar in design to Knott's home which was built in 1950 located at 1000 W Forest Hills Blvd.

Willis and Emily Aldridge House

3322 Devon Road, ca. 1952, Contributing Building

One-story, hipped-roof, brick Ranch house with deep eaves and metal casement windows, providing modernist elements; other features include a picture window, recessed entry with sidelights, and garage at south elevation; despite the Devon Road address, the facade fronts Windsor Way. Willis and Emily Aldridge are the earliest owners and residents listed in the city directories; Willis H. Aldridge was part owner of the company Montgomery & Aldridge, which operated a gas station on Morgan Street and household appliances store on Roney Street.
