My Family Home

by Carol H, over 2 years ago

The home I live in is truly a family home.  Built in 1926 the house was first occupied by my Great Grandmother Alice and her husband. It then passed to my grandmother, also named Alice and her sister Ethel. Upon their deaths it was bequeathed to my mother and I inherited the house from her, In time it will be passed on to my daughters.  Although it is a modest weatherboard structure it is a home filled with love and memories as  five generations of woman have been continual residents and raised their families in the home.  I feel privileged to have had this connection with the community which I've seen  develop over the years and also its inhabitants, many of whom were relatives when I was a child.

The first photo is of the home with the original owner. We love the photo of Murchison Street, pre- footpath and sealed road.

The second photo is of Kangaroo Valley Road - also unsealed.
