FOR A QUIET woman who never considered trying out for her high school play, Clydia Koch has become somewhat of a Pied Piper in youth theater production in the Mount Airy area. "There's a freshness children bring to a production," said the now-experienced director. "It's very rewarding to see young people come into a play nervous and shy and at the end to see them perform with confidence with a group of actors who've become their friends. It's fun being able to see that happen, to have the ability to make that happen."

Four stories high, not including above-ground basements, these ornate structures stand like a long stone wall with their second- and third-story bay windows presenting a rippling effect along their exteriors. Sandy Lawler and her husband, Michael Welter, purchased one of these houses in the block that is now part of Belvedere Terrace.
