What I Love About The Home
The History of the building, large rooms with tall 10 foot ceilings natural wood work through out the building. The privacy of the court yard with the trees. the work shop’s for hobbies and to sell my antiques. the 24 x 37 garage in the back. the town has really nice and friendly people, when ever I have needed help all I had to do was ask !!! Just a short drive to a larger town that has a hospital, dentist, Kmart, Walmart, Etc.
