Photo 57-JSH-30


My grandparents home. This home was only 11 years old, the original farmhouse burned down in 1969. They kept 10 acres and sold off five acres to each child (had 15 kids total) and a lot of them built homes on those lots nearby. My house would be just out of frame at the top left. There were uncles on either side of them, one on the other side of us and behind us and a couple more farther back in the woods to (out of frame on left side). This was sold when Grandma died in 2009 and now a group of buddhist monks live there. Some of the kids sold their homes (mine included) and about 6 still live on the adjacent lands.
