The history of our house is very important to me. I have tried looking up everything I can. The owners before us had lived here since the 80's. Then my mother-in-law said she knew the lady who lived here in the 70's. I contacted her and was so delighted as she shared stories and photos with me.
Here is our home now, or within the last few years~
This is the smoke house, now being used as a pool house.
And here are the photos from 1972. You will notice the house was sided. While scraping the old paint in '72, the owner contacted lead poisoning. Thus the siding went up. Unfortunately the siding butchers removed all the trim from around the windows. Thank goodness they left the details around the attic window, but it was still cut on the outer edges. How I would love to remove the siding and paint the old clapboard~ but alas, we cannot afford it and we certainly don't want anything to do with hazardous lead either.
(gotta love the old "Fox Photo" ones!)
I wish I could find information from the early 1900's, but I keep hitting dead ends. I'll keep trying though!
