The script from the speech is coming soon 🙂
This two storied frame house was where Benjamin Gonter lived from 1859 to 1865. Jacob Strein preceded him and a man named Joe Richardson occupied the home in the 1930s. This had been a vacant lot all the way up to James Bennett’s house, which had been Stephen Smith’s before 1850, and all intervening houses – except the church – were built since that year. Smith’s house was built in the early 40s.
