  1. Grew up in Germantown! Shopped the Avenue all the Time! Want to know what happen to C. A. Rowell’s; also there was Allen’s another big department Store. Are they sitting empty or are businesses inside them? Germantown was beautiful to grow up in. Loved Growing up there; we walked or rode bikes every where.
