I wrote to Bob Briere, our resident historian, and asked him to identify the house in the previous posting. Bob wrote back, and sounded very definite that the house was an old farm house I had happened to drive by the other day while I was out taking some photos around town. The current photo at the top of the page was taken at this old farm. Here is what Bob wrote:
Well, an anonymous comment was also left stating the house was on Fiskhill Road, so I went there, and to Finlay Road, as Bob feels this is the house, to take some photos. Now the mystery deepens.
You judge for yourself.
|The Ed Nichols House|
This is another Federal style home on the north end of Fiskhill Road. No chimneys, but they could have been taken down long ago, and the center, second floor window doesn't match at all.
There are several other Federal style homes in town, maybe one near you. Is it a match to the Nichols House, or is that house long gone?
