pumpkin patch

You know it's fall and almost Holloween when the grounds at Grace Methodist Church are covered with pumpkins. They have every size and shape for your jack-o-lantern carvings, or if you are talented enough to make a pumpkin pie from scratch.

Historic Homes

The Grand Dame of all the historic houses is located at 9th and Monroe. This one is very dear to me because my family  owned it from 1946 to 1955. This is not a  recent picture of it, when I went to get a photo of it to post, I was shocked at the condition it's in now. I'd rather remember how it looked in it's prime which this photo deplicts.

Historic Homes

This is my grandfather Ed Beal and his mother in 1947. They spent 7 years restoring the house because when they bought it, it was in terrible disrepair. The ground floor even had chickens living in it.

Historic Homes

This house at 1303 Ohio gained recognition because of the blocks of white sand used in it's construction

I don't have any history on this house but I think it is just lovely

This house at 1309 Michigan was known as the El Paso and Northeastern Hospital, and from the old pictures I've seen, it still looks alot the same. It is now apartments.
