To Grandmother’s House We Go

Several post back someone asked me about the house that I am showing in my header. I meant to answer the question in the next post and something came up and it slipped my mind. I’m sorry I can’t remember now who asked, but I wanted to let them know that the house is the one my grandparents on my dad’s side lived in when I was a child. My grandfather was a share cropper and this home was the sixteenth home that him and my grandmother had lived in. They were married in 1923 and moved into this house in 1950. My grandfather died in 1959 and my grandmother continued to live there until 1986 when she moved along with my old maid Aunt to a newer home across town. She lived there until her death in Aug. 2000. My Aunt continues to live in the new home.

Thank you for the tour of the old house Patty! I love old houses and the porch on that one looks so welcoming.

Take Care,
Debbie

The pics are really neat - looks like a really warm, kind place. It's so neat that it stayed in the family one way or another for so long. Also very, very nice that you have remembered it this way, shared it.

There must have been alot of 'history' and memories in that old house. I assume that your aunt is still alive. Do you ever see her?

You were lucky to have grandparents. All of mine were dead BEFORE I was born. I miss that wonderful part of life.

Thanks for sharing your grandmother's old home.
Hugs,
Betsy

A cute little house with a lot of memories for someone.
Thanks for your comment on my Alabama post. Soon I'm going to put some pictures of the statues they put up last year of the band.
I didn't know you and your husband met on line. Me and my husband did also.
