What It Means To Own A Historic Home VIDEO
I’ve been reflecting on a fantastic open house this last weekend with over 100 people at my Willo home, where I had the rare opportunity to meet the daughter of the original owners of my home. Jane moved into 301 W Cambridge in 1945 with her two sisters and parents at the age of 16, her father having relocated the family from Colorado for a new position with the telephone company in Phoenix. The house was brand new and Jane lived there with her family until 1953.
It was the highlight of my weekend to get to know Jane and her husband Charles and listen to the great stories of the Willo neighborhood when it was brand new. It’s hard to picture the street without any fences between the properties—but that’s just the sort of insight and history that Jane shared.
Please enjoy this short video of my chat with Jane.
Owning a historic home is not so much about the home being “older” or harkening back to a past era— it’s about owning a piece of history— and more importantly honoring the people who lived in that home previously.
If you’ve ever considered owning a historic home in Phoenix, I’d love to help you realize that goal.
Thank you Jane and Charles for sharing the treasure of your stories with me.
