We are a neighborhood filled with memories and stories. This photo, taken in 1924, shows a gathering of local kids at the Alameda Park Community Church, built in 1921 on an island of property at NE Regents and Mason. Today, the building is known as the Subud Center, 3185 NE Regents Drive. For more history of the Subud Center/Alameda Park Community Church, check out the link below.
