Today I’ve started a new feature on LIST: Life in a Small Town. There are so many turn of the century homes in our town that I thought the homes should be documented. I started the series on the IPhriday Photo Challenge when I was getting out and about town to take photos with my I Phone on Fridays, but decided there are so many homes and stories, that they deserve their own spot!

Today we are looking at two homes next door to each other. Notice the similarities? The Caldwell home was built in 1903 by John F Caldwell. By 1911, Mr Caldwell was asking the town for lights and sidewalks along “Eastern Heights,” the name he had given to his property that originally consisted of four houses.

By 1917, the Caldwell’s son, Roy and his wife, one of the Sample sisters, moved into the house next door.

When Mr John Caldwell moved, after the death of his wife, the sisters of Mrs Roy Caldwell, Annie and Grace Sample moved into the original Caldwell house. Are you following all this? What it boils down to is in many small towns the families lived next door to each other. Even in my family, that lived on a farm, the children all got some small part of the farm property, upon marriage, to build their houses on. That is one way they all stayed together and helped on the farm.  When I am doing genealogy I always look in the records to see the neighbors of any family. Most like they are kin!

All photos were taken on my IPhone and Painted in IPhone Apps.

Do you have relatives that live next door to each other? I’d like to hear from you!
