Pine Grove Terrace Apartments


President Eugene B. Elliott constructed Pine Grove Apartments as part of his expansion plans. The apartments were reserved for married housing, housing that would appeal to GIs with families returning from the Korean War (1950-1953). Pine Grove #1 opened with thirty-six completely furnished apartments earmarked for married students. A one-bedroom apartment cost $60 a month and a two-bedroom apartment cost $70 a month. Furnishings included a Youngstown kitchen in dawn yellow and meridian blue with a gas range and an electric refrigerator. A living room, bedroom, bathroom, and heating unit were all included in individual units.
