    For many years I wondered how Oak Knoll cars got from South Lake to Oak Knoll Ave. without going around the sharp curves. I finally found this short bit of private right of way in the 1970’s. Back in 1978, an old house was moved onto the other end of the right of way; it’s now been there so long that it looks like it was built there.
