On our way to find the cemetery on Saturday, we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa’s house on Laurel Street in Forest Grove.  Very little has changed with the house in the 30 years since Grandma lived there. These black and white photos are from the mid-fifties…60 years ago.  They had probably lived there for 10 years before that.

The Oregonian box is gone:

As we were standing at the end of the driveway, a man came up behind us and asked if there was a problem.  We immediately guessed he lived there!  We explained our connection to the house, he thought he knew who had lived there before him, but we agreed that it had been 30 years so we probably didn’t have any way to connect to him.  He did confirm that you can still see all the way to McMenamins Grand Lodge from the back yard.  It used to be the Masonic Home that you could see from the backyard.
