Did you ever wonder about the people who lived in your house before you? What did they do for a living? How many kids did they have and what were their ages? Did they use these rooms for the same purposes we do? What family traditions were celebrated in this home?
Today we met Rick Neahring who took that wondering to the next level and decided to research the history of his 1920s house in the Bush's Pasture Park neighborhood. While performing cataract surgery, Rick, an opthomologic surgeon, realized that his patient, geneaologist Christy Van Heukelem, was willing to do this research...and the rest is, as they say, history.
He suspects that many of the homes in his neighborhood have wonderful family histories that should be explored. Perhaps you will find, as Rick did, that whatever drew you to the house you purchased was more than just coincidence.
