Photo 63-IJE-17


This looks to be my childhood home. 6635 South County Road 500 East, North Vernon, IN 47265. My Parents (Benjamin and Jennifer Morris) purchased this home from my mother’s brother and his wife (Nathan and Melissa Sporleder) in 1997. We moved out shortly after my dad passed away in 2015 and it was sold to Caleb and Kaylee Schneider who currently live there. Lots of memories on that little acre… This home looks very different these days with a new extended and covered front porch, an additional detached barn/garage, expanded gravel driveway, new metal roof and more.

Hi Hannah, thanks for sharing your memories of your childhood home! We'd love to hear more about your experiences growing up in Jennings County.

Also, you mentioned the property had an expanded gravel driveway and a detached barn/garage - were there any other notable changes to the landscape or surrounding area?
