Last week, here, I shared some old photos of our house though we were not the intended subject of the photos. Saturday I joined the local historical society and purchased two books that tell the history of this town. Three more photos from one of those books show our house, too.
We've been learning more about our house after the tip to search the deeds online at the Sullivan County website. I'll share what we've learned in a future post.
The first photo is the Inn and store that used to be next to our property. Notice our house tucked in the right side. This is a more recent photo than than one posted last week because the trees are grown. We think that the year must be in the 1910s because of the car. See it in front of the brick building?
The second photo is dated 1927 after the fire. Again our house on the right. But notice the hill behind - devoid of trees. That's the hill we see out back and it's covered with trees as you know.
