Found some really old maps of town online today, and found out that the house I'm living in now was built in 1886, and had two additions put on by 1892 (reaching it's current size), and that within two blocks of here, there were a grocery, a slaughterhouse, a school, a large brewery/beer garden, and a wool mill.

This place was a lot more livable 130 years ago than today 😟
