It is interesting to see the changes in the Russellville house.

I agree. The add ons are fascinating.

I'm always confused by how to leave a comment on your posts Dee. None of the links seem logical to me.
The Russellville house changes were interesting to follow. Like the gropu photos too.

Your ancestors had beautiful homes, Dee. I especially like how the small house became a big house AND that someone took photos over time. Very fun.

I also wanted to wish you a happy blogging anniversary. I know it was a day or two or three ago. Here's to many more years!

What years do you think the house had the additions? You wouldn't think it was the same house.

Hi Dee, I just love the turret and lattice work on the house in picture three and four, lots of talented work there!

What a wonderful selection of family homes --- and so different. You are lucky to have these photos in your collection.

That is one spectacular photograph to have in your possession.
I am struck particularly, by the detail on the woman's dress. It is truly beautiful.
