1953 the house was purchased by my parents, Bill and Harriet Bauer,
from Mrs. Emma Osborn, widow of Harold, who told them the house had
been in the family for
a number of generations. The Bauer's uncovered the original kitchen
fireplace that had been covered up. They found the hearth stone across
the street and put it back into place. The pots and hearth tools were
found in the attic.
