Coming Down

The house is coming down. This is how it looked on Tuesday when my sister drove by. One of our sons also stopped in and talked to the men who are doing the demolition. He was told the barn is rented and will probably stand another year. The house is being taken down to make way for the road that will go in to the development. It will be called Willow Creek. The name is taken from the willow tree that stands along the creek in the meadow. There was no willow tree in the meadow when we lived there. This house was built in 1900 so it stood for 109 years before succumbing in the name of "progress."

For all us old Ephrata area emigrants, could you give the exact street & township address of your old homestead?
