Today was a historic day at Toad House. Up on a ladder with his head in the rafters, Tony found an original beam in the original house with four signatures. I took a photo of the signatures before they will get tucked into the new dry wall.
I am able to make out the first name, Harry Ballon.
The second one appears to be Bessie ____.
The third appears to be Jr. H.___.
The fourth looks like Bud ___.
Wouldn't it be fun to learn more about these people! I went to city hall to see if I could find out when the house was built. Kurt Gorsegner found records to show it was built in 1905 and the garage in 1920. How fun it is to imagine these people signing their names up in the rafters of the house.
Are they your relatives?? The toads would love to know more.
