If Walls Could Talk
South Dakota became a state on November 2, 1889. When we discovered a newspaper, that insulated the walls, date back to June 25, 1899 we were pretty excited! We tried to salvage as much as we could. We kept hoping to find something more valuable, but no such luck. However, we did find some fun facts! Did you know, that dotted veils viciously irritates the eyes. Choose a plain, honest veil to wear in blustery weather. Your eyes will thank you. To test eggs, drop them into a dish of water, and if the small end comes up to the top they are fresh. The Hero of Manila is apparently a book written by Rossiter Johnson in 1899. We’re hoping to eventually get some of these newspapers framed. It’s kinda cool to to see history preserved in this way! Once we get the old walls down, we’ll be ready to start framing. We’ve come up with a great floor plan that will give this house a master bedroom, with a walk in closet, and five piece master bathroom. It will also have two more bedrooms and another full bathroom. Finally, we are going to add an attached two car garage.
