Richard's family moved to the Red Brick house when Grandma & Grandpa retired.

Grandma (Leila) loved to wallpaper and I specifically remember her doing the dining room at the red brick house. Grandpa and I got to write on the walls before the new paper went up. Once we went on vacation and when we came home she had wallpapered my bedroom.~Stephanie

I broke a bed jar upstairs at the red brick house. I remember grandpa smoking his pipe after lunch there.~Larry
