Briggs Terrace Water Tower HomeBriggs Terrace offers the best of two worlds- peaceful mountain community living just minutes away from suburban and big city living. A large number of the homes were built in the later 1950’s and there are quite a few eclectic character homes built in the 20’s and 30’s. One of the homes was converted from the original water tower placed there by Dr. Benjamin Briggs himself!

This is the place for people who value nature, quiet and feeling apart from city life. It is so tucked away that rumor has it that Clark Gables and Greta Garbo had a love nest here!

This issue has been around since the 1950’s but recent events have made the possibility far more real.
