  • David, Great pictures of a sad event. It is good to know that the occupants are safe.

    I am sure that steadyeddie, razyn, and davidnoe will have some great memories of this property from their childhood days.

    That may have been the old Caleb Thompson home. I can not be sure. In the back of my mind I was thinking that the Thompson home was on the corner of North Main and Noblitt with an iron railing fence around it, but I do not know for sure.

    That will be great for Dr. Rogers' Christmas display to be revived. There are some great memories surrounding our annual pilgrimage up on the hill to see and enjoy his display.

  • The old drive thru not the new ones

  • Yes, leeiii....the Caleb Thompson home was on the north side of Noblitt Street (big two-story home with the iron fence all around. On the south side of Noblitt street was the Noblitt home and the second home was the Evans home...not the same structure shown here. Makes me think this Cunningham home must have replaced the Evans home after I moved away in 1954.

  • I am so excited to hear that the Rogers' display will be back next year. I always loved driving out to see it when I was a kid.

  • Is this the house where the Reese family lived years ago and ran Reese's Motor Cycle Sales or something to do with motorcyles?

  • I'm not sure where the Reese family lived, but the motorcycle sales business was in a building, since replaced with a newer structure, that faced Noblitt Street.
