of the Martanna card that “Mr. Martin
Durrett and wife Anna own this
property so this is how it got its name.”

“There is a rumor afloat, that several of Covington's generous millionaires are about to buy 'Wallace Woods'
and donate it to the city of Covington for a park. It is sincerely to be wished that there is much
truth in the report, for there is no more convenient nor more desirable place for a park. 
The grand old mansion [Holmes Castle] would be a charming place for a 'Public library.'”
from the Cincinnati weekly Chic (V 1, #19),
