Every house has some sort of history. What I have established from the house that we moved into was that a gentleman who had built the house in 1928 lived in it until 1934. It was sold to a couple who pretty much raised a family in it close to over fifty years. When speaking with people who grew up here and asked where I live, the house is still referred to as the last name of that family.
I know most of the kids on the street refer to my house as the Halloween house but I guess we have to live here 40 more years until it can aquire my last name.
