House Floor Plan - Doc0621.pdf
This brick ranch home was along the same floor plan as the North of Daleville house except a bit larger and arranged differently. It had 3 bedrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, one bath and a 2 car garage. This home was sitting in the middle of one acre. The family had originally bought 2 acres but later sold the extra lot to the Dick family. The home ran east and west as the other house but the garage opened to the east instead of the south.

Later a little red barn was built by Walt. He looked at the one his neighbor had and built his from designs and plans he created. They also later had a blacktop drive installed. There were lots of apple trees that were planted and cared for by Walt.

The family was living here when, in January of 1977, son Phil died of accidental causes. Norma took this event very hard and never recovered from the loss.

This home was lived in by Norma from 1966 until her death in December 2005. Walter continued to live there until he sold it and moved to Muncie in 2006.
