A Little Montgomery Village History
Excerpts from the article “Hugh Codding Dies at 92”
By GAYE LEBARON
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT Published: Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 3:00 a.m.
Hugh Bishop Codding, for more than 60 years a larger-than-life figure in the economy and politics of Sonoma County, died Saturday of pneumonia. He was 92.
Codding, generally credited with having altered the course of post-World War II Santa Rosa, became a legend in residential and commercial development in the 1950s and ’60s.
Codding’s early development projects constitute the quintessential story of Santa Rosa’s building boom of the late 1940s and 1950s.
After his graduation from Santa Rosa High School in 1936, Codding worked for his plumber stepfather, David Hall, and took construction courses at night.
The first house he built, on speculation, is at 938 Bush Street in Santa Rosa. He sold it in the late 1930s for $2,950. His next venture was a small development near the corner of E Street and Bennett Avenue. He named one of his new streets Georgia Street for the girlfriend of the man he bought the property from, displaying the whimsical approach to development that would characterize his career.
Back on the market is this now VACANT, mid-century cutie which every returning World War II vet wanted! Why 2 bedrooms? Young GI’s needed at least ONE other bedroom as the “Baby-Boom” was under way!! This was and IS a perfect 1st timer house and ironically, a great “move-down” house for those SAME Vets! But in the boom , post WW II, years many families began in this new community which Hugh Codding almost made another TOWN! At the time Mr. Codding was holding out for city sewer. He was rebuked by our then City Council so he started designing his “village” to be just THAT! Smarter minds prevailed and today Montgomery Village is a very walkable area with major grocery, department and specialty stores just a short walk away. Schools are some of the best also !
This home, which appears to have upgraded flooring (hardwood floors in a unique “basket-weave” look) and tile work, is a wonder to behold. The retro tile work is very HIP! The brick fireplace in the spacious living room would make a great place to “camp-out” with a good book on a chilly, raining winer’s eve. Just imagine, nice cozy couch, you, perhaps the family cat, perhaps a spouse, curled up, reading, feeling the embrace of this lovely home.
A big plus of these homes is the yard size. This very spacious 6000+ sqft lot is loaded with mature shrubs, landscaping, lush lawn, and apple trees. The home also has new wiring, heating and roof! Come by and visit us this Sunday! Directions: Montgomery Village to Hahman to Villageside. Property is just up a couple of blocks from the “Village” and Lucky’s, Monti’s Restaurant, Sonoma Bagel, Exchange Bank, Sea Thai Restaurant, etc. Open house 1 to 4pm.
