Samuel Gompers Residence (1920)

Labor Leaders - historic

Address info drawn from 1920 City Directory (p 677); as of 2008, there's no 3500 35th Street; the big house on the corner (which looks like it could be Gompers house) is now 3601 Ordway; across the street is 3500 Ordway, which is a modern structure and an unlikely candidate. Further research -- check a 1920's-era plat map -- needs to be done to determine if Gompers' house is still standing (and if so, the location).
