Woodburn H I S TORY AND C HARM ABOUND

woodburn packs history and charm . Like most of the area, it was originally farmland. The neighborhood grew rapidly at the start of the 20th century as tinsmiths traveled from Wales to work in the tinplate mill. Back then, a trolley ran down Richwood Avenue and connected downtown with Sabraton’s factories. The history of neighborhood hangout Mario’s Fishbowl dates to 1949, when the building at 704 Richwood Avenue opened as a con- fectionary that sold groceries and ice cream and had beer on tap. You can get a “fishbowl” of beer, order up some wings or other favorites, and pore over the good ol’ days as reflected on the walls in scraps of paper left by customers over the decades. Most Woodburn homes were built in that early- to mid-20th century period. Residents enjoy a playground and an easy walk downtown to the farmers market or for dinner through Whitemoore Park, the city’s oldest park.
