Boone County, Illinois, 1973. Copyright © State Aerial. Share

This is our home. We bought it in May of 2009. It was in very rough shape when we purchased it but I knew it was where we wanted to be (convincing my husband and daughter of that was a job in itself!)
We have worked very hard with family and friends and gutted the whole house; it is still a work in progress but WE LOVE IT HERE. I can't think of any other place on earth that I would rather call home.
Getting the picture of what it used to be and all the history was such a great gift that I received for Christmas from my husband. It looks wonderful hanging in our living room and makes me smile every time I look at it to think of all that this house has seen and heard over the years. Thank you so much for this wonderful photo!
