Once the City of College Park adopted the Urban Renewal plan in 1970, two thirds of the community's households--mostly in the eastern and western sections of Lakeland--had to vacate their houses. After families had moved out, several of Lakeland’s homes were burned as training exercises for the local fire department. Here is a photo of one such incident.

James Walter Edwards Jr. moved his family into this home on Albany Avenue, east of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks, in 1940. After the Christmas holiday that year, Edwards planted the Christmas tree used in his living room, along with one used in a friend’s celebration. These transplanted trees dwarf the Edwards’ house in this 1960s photograph. The home was demolished in the mid-1970s as part of the urban renewal project.
