Our Neighbors Home



Our next door neighbor’s home was built around 1908. The architecture you see here is typical of the more upscale farm houses in our area at that time. The original design was meant to house two families. This was the home of the folks featured in my August 16th post “Family Photos. I took this photo in 1976.





The farm has been in the same family for well over one hundred years now. Gerald and Virginia are the current owners and are the third generation to have lived in it. The house has been remodeled and still retains all of the charm and beauty of the country farm house.


I enjoy living beside such a picturesque home, but the best part is not the house,
but rather what good neighbors Gerald and Virginia are.

Beautiful home snuggled in the trees. Salty, you're tribute to your friends is touching. I would love to have you as a neighbor too.

Yes, it is, indeed, still charming. I see they cut down the tree in the front.

A neighbor recently gave us a photo she took about 40 years ago of what used to be an old home but is my husbands shop now. A nice piece of history.

That is SO interesting seeing the effects of the time delay between the two photos... I really enjoy reading your blogs -- not just looking at the pictures...

What a splendid piece of architecture! I grew up in a house built during the Civil War, and with all the loving work my Dad always did to maintain our home, I can appreciate anyone who lives in and maintains these gorgeous buildings!
