Special Picture # 329 – Trumbull House – Then and Now – A Steep Hill I Had to Climb – 1922 – 2018

 

Trumbull House and Driveway – 2018

Trumbull House – 2018 – Front Steps

BISS – I think the first memory I have of the Trumbull house is being sent to the store at the corner and when I came out of the store, I didn’t know how to get back home. There was a street that went straight, which wasn’t the right street. I started down there but I knew that was wrong so I turned around and came back. I could be wrong but my impression was that Daniels Farm Road was a dirt road, but I’m not sure. I know that there were no streetlights or anything. Anyway, I found my way home and I remember this steep hill I had to climb all the time. That was true until I got quite older. That steep hill was the driveway… or you could use the front steps which had steps and landings, steps and landings, steps and landings. The front door was used quite a bit. The salesman would come to that door. So any time anyone was selling anything, they came up the front stairs.

    I’d say a salesman who climbed those steps should get a few minutes to make his pitch (and recover).

      Dan – Here’s a memory from Dick related to your comment – One of my earliest memories is Mom at the front Dutch door, talking to someone from the Red Cross. I was standing next to her and she was running her hand through my hair… It was Heaven.
