David Ed Holden took out the permit to build this house in 1957 for himself and wife Gladys. “For his entire working life he served as manager of Southside Homes,” noted his funeral program. Located on South Tryon Street, Southside Homes was built in 1952 as one of Charlotte’s public housing developments. Gladys was a school teacher who helped open York Road School adjacent to Southside Homes in 1955, then worked there her whole career.
