E ME One early renter was Maude ‘l(en«ney Meredith Terry ofllrooklyn, born in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1887. She spent her summers in East-ville and often visited the beach by way of a path through the woods. Her walks inspired a vision of homes among the trees. Mrs. Terry began to search for the owner of the 20 wooded acres between Hampton Street and Gardiner's -Bay and found Elsie Gale of Huntington. Mrs. Gale's son, Daniel, had been unsuccessful in his attempts to sell the prop- erty. Mrs. Terry approached Daniel Gale with a plan to subdivide the property into lots which she promised to help sell through her network of colleagues and friends.
