Hanging around the community center yesterday, I noticed this picture on the wall. That's our house! Over a hundred years ago! At that time the mill was operating and Fall Creek was dammed, creating a huge pond behind our house. Our back door was steps from the pond, and is now about 75-100 yards from the river, with woods in between. All kinds of junk is lying around at the former pond's bottom, behind our house: old whiskey bottles and the rest. This is looking at the back of our house from across the river, before additions were made to the house, but after it was first built as a one room log cabin. The shed there was the shoemaker's, who owned our house, and it was later moved up to become the 'garage' which is decaying at the side of our house.
