Almost a century ago, prospective home builders could purchase lots in Prince George’s Millar Addition for $325 each. But there were conditions attached — and perhaps offset by visions of future residential prestige. According to an advertisement in the Prince George Herald newspaper on December 18, 1915:
To the Home Builder:
We will sell you a fine residential lot in the MILLAR ADDITION, which is within two blocks of George Street, for $325, providing you agree to build a house costing $1,000 thereon within a year.
The Millar Addition of Prince George promises to become the best residential section of this city.
