Creating Home - The Turnaround House

Spirit Of A Place

I’ve talked about my home in other blog posts (you can click here to read about why I call it The Turnaround House).  I’ve always loved older homes–especially if you can find out some of their history.  They have such character and charm, and that’s why I fell in love with this one.

Luckily, some of the descendants of the home live on the cul-de-sac and were able to tell me a little bit about the previous owners who built it in the 1920’s.  I also found a history of the original descendants here.  Apparently it was owned by a polygamist man whose first wife wasn’t his favorite because he married his housekeeper as his second wife and put her up in a bigger house up the street.  🙂

I was also given some pictures to see what the house looked like when it was originally built in 1926 and then when it was later remodeled in 1946.

It’s important to me to have a sense of a place and respect it and understand it when making changes and improvements.  I am so glad to know more about the history of the John Fisher house, but to me, it will always be The Turnaround House.
