Built in 1896, this home is where my parents live and where memories of ancestors remain. The house stands with its old quirks and historic charm. Uneven bricks line the exterior. Door handles show chips and wear from the grasps of hundreds of hands throughout the many years. Weathered beams and wood still stand as buildings after enduring through centuries of storms, snow, and sun. Rows of crops and chickens are tended to with care. A view of the church is admired in the distance every day, reminding our family of the purpose and sacrifice that brought our family to establish this residence over 100 years ago.
