Like so many other communities, the buildings to me are a piece of our local history. I have said this many times, but if walls could talk! It would be so interesting to see what they have to say. I see a home old or new, I see a piece of our history. So if I add old homes as tips, I just cannot help myself. Too often people do not appreciate them, but I do.
