Encinal Avenue holds particular esteem for me, as it has been the home of the Alameda Sun World Headquarters since it began publishing in 2001. Both Encinal Avenue itself and its name are steeped in local history.
I never met a house that had written a book about itself until Alain Pinel Realtor Johanna Hall introduced me to the Craftsman-style cottage at 2516 Encinal Ave.
The 100th anniversary of the opening of Neptune Beach is fast approaching. Neptune Beach once occupied the shoreline along Central Avenue between today’s McKay Avenue and Page Street. The resort welcomed its first guests on March 31, 1917.
