44 Parker Drive in Pittsford

44 Parker Drive in the early 1950'sOur recent car tour of some Pittsford Hershey homes took us by 44 Parker Drive – the former home of Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Jones”. It is so charming – a classic Hershey. It was featured in the 1954 book “QUALITY BUDGET HOUSES, A Treasury of 100 Architect-Designed Houses from $5,000 to $20,000.”
