Our House is Famous

Two weekends ago, we had a lady come to the house to pick up some old appliances.  Before she left, we were chatting and she said that she remembered a house in this neighborhood that used to have all sort of statues out front.  I told her that, well, it was this house!  Her eyes immediately got wide and she exclaimed that she would have to tell her mother that she was at the “statue house,” and that when she was a little girl, she’d always point the house out to her mom as they were driving down Hwy 61.  I knew this was the “statue house” from a newspaper article the next-door neighbors had given us the week before:

This is the kind of thing that makes buying an old house awesome.  Click “More” to see the rest of the photos from the article.

Before the stucco was put on, this house had wooden clapboard siding, and was white with green trim.

The caption on this photo is just great. They don't write 'em like this anymore!
