Yesterday Jeff and Sharon were excited to meet one of the Leonard daughters, Lois, who grew up in this house. She had an errand in the area and drove by and when she saw all the work happening she dropped by for a visit. We're really glad she did. She seemed pleased we were taking care of the old house and not fixing and flipping it.
She left after a brief tour and gave us her contact information. We're hoping to meet Lois again and next time her sister too and try and gather together more of their recollections of this house and what it was like to grow up here. We're saving all this information for a house history we're accumulating.
