Where I grew up!

May 19, 2009
The little itty one light stop town of New London, Ohio. If you look real close in the photo below you can see that one stop light! lol! It was one of those towns where everyone knew everyone and also everyone's business...lol! I would ride my bike everywhere and stay out really late with not a worry! Back then it really didn't look as small to me as it does in this picture. And not too much has changed since leaving when I graduated. They do have a small population McDonald's now! Lucky kids! :) It was one of those places where you knew who lived in every house, literally! I remember when Steve came with me once and I told him that he couldn't believe it. But you just did, it was that small!
And this is the house I grew up in from the time I was 5 until I left for College. 16 South Main Street. I would LOVE to have this house now and so wish my parents hadn't sold it during my college years. It was bulit in 1901 and amazing inside with woodwork everywhere and tiffany windows galore. It had 4 floors, 7 bedrooms, servant stairs, laundry shoots, a huge tiffany window in back (see below), summer rooms, 3 bathrooms and just such character! So many memories were made here!

    Loved your blog on good ole' NL! I want to make one correction on how it is very different these days. Our old school was torn down and left in its place is a Dollar Store and an open, grassy lot. It makes me feel really old to say that my school was demolished. ha ha
