My grandparents lived at 1006 Nassau their entire married life. They moved there in the late 1920s. That is about 70 years in one tiny location. 1006 was a 2 bedroom and one bath home. It had a tiny, less than 8 x 12, kitchen until my grandfather added a dining area onto the side of it.
The wash house was out back attached to the side of what we called the little house. The barracks were behind that. This is where many an alcoholic stayed to recovery when the front bedroom was occupied.
On the south side of the property was the shop where Hugh R. Etter Electric was located after it moved from where it sat next to the city auditorium location (current Plainview City Hall block).
This picture is L-R: Hugh Robert Etter, his father, Cleon Huston Robert Etter, and my mother, Lorena Zoe Etter [Dayton] at age 18 months.
Lots of wonderful ministries went on in this home throughout the years. Lots of trials and valleys were overcome, as well. A house is a home when we allow it to be.
(On another note...a story for another time, I love seeing our Bo's fingers in pictures. His had been amputated by the time I came along.)
