Today for Fun Monday I thought it would be neat to hear about the story behind your home and the road you live on. It doesn't have to be historical, maybe just something that stands out to you. It would be nice to have pictures to go with your little story. I also would like to know who has the oldest house. Whoever has the oldest house will get a little Christmas treat from little ole me.
List of participants below my FM post! This is a sticky post and will stay up till Tuesday. So, if you don't mind go below for other post till then. Thank you and a wonderful day!
This has been a big wow for me this week. I hope y'all had fun with it. I know this sounded sorta like another Fun Monday we did, but I wanted to bring out a little more and see who had the oldest home. I don't know who is next FM host will be, so, If you'll let me know it would be nice. Ooops! I forgot that part.
Okay, to the story behind my road and my house. My road was the 1st road (paved)ever made in Pontotoc, MS. It was made in 1941 and it is a concrete road. If you don't know it's concrete, you'll think it's a driveway. The funny thing is that it was never used much for anything until about 11 years ago when they decided to make a neighborhood. I have asked around and nobody knows why they built a road and not used it. My house was built in 1941 also. My house sat where our Burger King is now. It had sit there for about 20 years without anyone living in it. We moved it 10 years ago and strip it down to the frame. The wood is so seasoned that a lot of our nails would bend or break when we would try to put then in. We did most of our work our selves along with friends, family and others that wanted to help Habitat for Humanity.
I have always thought it was neat that my house and the road I live on was both built in 1941.
(We have had so much traffic and heavy vehicles that our road is getting big holes. I'm afraid they are going to pave it. That's one reason I wanted to do this, so I could always remember the original one.)
So, go on over and check out other's Fun Monday!
