I was very happy to learn that this beautiful home on Hope River Road was saved.

I lived in this home with my parents, Alma and Archie Koshowski, and grandparents, Hilda and Carl Thall, along with my aunts Ann, Esther and Clara from 1951 to 1954.

It was at one time a chicken farm with a huge orchard of Italian prune plums and many English type gardens.

There are many fond memories of this home and I am so happy that it didn’t get destroyed.

I look forward to seeing it in its new home. Thanks to everyone who was instrumental in saving this gem.
