I was just over at "1893 Victorian Farmhouse"
And she was showing the LOVELY Victorian Home they now own...which was built in you guessed it......1893...and the history behind it...what a treasure of images she has from it.
It got me to thinking...altho...the home I grew up in was not NEAR as elegant or Victorain...it was in our family for over 65 years before my parents finally sold it.
It was built by my great-grandparents in 1899 for $3,000.00 I was told.
The first photo was taken the same year my brother was born ...who is celebrating his 80th Birthday soon.
I lived in it for the first 20 years of my life, along with my sister, three brothers, Mom, Dad and Grandparents.
I loved this house.
It has been cared for beautifully, as you can see (by the second image ).
This picture was taken by a friend of mine in 1999, when it sold then for over $450,000.00 !!
Just had the urge to show it to you all.
