The cavity of 2400 Eager Street. The Getz family lived in this space over 100 years ago.

We’ve been working in and around 2400 Eager Street, so we figured we’d tell you a little bit about the folks who lived here in 1910, just a few years after it was first built.
Caspar Getz was born in Baltimore in 1859 to German parents. He worked as a laborer in an ice factory. Caspar was married to Maggie, also a Marylander of German ancestry.
2400 Eager Street in 1910 must have been quite a busy house- Caspar and Maggie lived there with their 8 children! Constant, 24, worked at the ice factory with his pops. Maggie, 18, worked as a clerk at a department store. Then followed Charles, John, Edward, Albert, Evlin, and baby Annie.

Do you know someone who lived on the 2300-2400 blocks of Eager Street? Would you like to share your memories of the neighborhood? Contact us and tell us your story!
