A Home of Their Own

Hello Dear Reader,
Early in the spring Wes and Mary moved out of the house at 1100 West 500 North and bought a little unfinished two-bedroom house at 572 North 970 West. The house was lacking many amenities including an inside toilet. The cold water came in through the wall in the kitchen. Their kitchen stove was a coal stove. They had very little furniture. But they were happy because the house was theirs to add on to and do with as they pleased.

I assume they paid cash for their house because they never, in their whole married life, had a mortgage.
Love,
Aunt Genni

Wow that is amazing that they never had a morgage. I wish that was true for the rest of us.

I love this old picture of this house. As far back as I can remember, I have always watched for this house whenever I went up Grandma's street. In my mind, it was a special place because of the history it held.
