Homeplace 1893

This is the house that mygrandfather built and my dad grew up here. We moved to the homeplace about 1939, because my grandfather had died,then a son Clifton, and my grandmother all died. The place was up for sale. Back then , if you kept one family name on the property for 100 years,then you never had to pay taxes on that property again. Of course they changed that law, before anyone benefited from it. Never the less, we moved there, There were still a few good years of " Down home on the farm", but war was coming every thing was changed!!
