rosalie evans: To Acreage Or Not To Acreage! That Is The Question! - 10/09/11 01:48 PM

I often hear from people about their dreams of living in the country on an acreage. I used to share this dream too until it happened. I found that it wasn’t the dream come true that I had envisioned.  While I did like that you have a little more freedom with your property there was also some negatives!
1.    Do you like to be close to town to grab a loaf of bread or to go to the kids sporting events? You might not be!
2.   Do you need to be off to work early in the morning in … (12 comments)

rosalie evans: Extreme Mausoleum Makeover Sioux Falls, SD - 10/05/11 12:59 PM

In the heart of Sioux Falls, in my heart of my neighborhood is Woodlawn Cemetery. Woodlawn is one of the oldest cemeteries in the city and is the earthly home of many of the forefathers of our great city. The crown jewel of the cemetery is the R.F. Pettigrew mausoleum.  This mausoleum holds four members of the Pettigrew family, Sen. R.F. Pettigrew, Bessie Pettigrew (his wife), Alma Pettigrew(his sister), Harlan Page Pettigrew (his brother).  The mausoleum was constructed prior to the death of Bessie Pettigrew in 1916.  After 90+ years of wear and tear the roof of the structure was … (9 comments)

rosalie evans: Family Fun Day In Sioux Falls, SD - 09/22/11 04:26 PM

A great family fun day in Sioux Falls is a trip to the Great Plains Zoo! The zoo is open year round but my favorite time to go is in the fall. The weather is nice and the animals are still all out on display. Admission for adults is around $8.00 and kids are under $5.00. So this is a very affordable day of family fun.

Pack a lunch and go have a family picnic after you go through at Lower Sherman Park which is adjoining the zoo parking lot. With a restroom area, picnic benches and playground equipment … (3 comments)

In Sioux Falls we have a beautiful Veterans Memorial Park. It is one of the newest additions to the Sioux Falls Park System, being dedicated on September 9,2006, but it was worth the wait.

rosalie evans: RASE August 2011 Housing Market Statistical Reporting For Sioux Falls, SD - 09/13/11 07:51 PM

Sioux Falls, SD – September 12, 2011:Despite some choppy waters in August, there have been noteworthy shifts on both sides of the closing table. Buyer activity is moving back in line with historical trends while sellers are making fewer concessions in order to sell their homes. Falling supply and improving absorption rates in many regions also suggest that market balance is realigning towards neutral. Locally, a few indicators posted positive movement over August 2011, but do the rest of the numbers provide reason for optimism?
New Listings in the Sioux Falls region decreased 5.1 percent to 498. Pending Sales … (2 comments)

Built in 1889 for Thomas and Jenny Mc Martin, this home was later bought for 12,000, by Senator Richard Franklin Pettigrew. Pettigrew came to Sioux Falls in 1869 and was an instrumental part of our area’s history.
Pettigrew was responsible for bringing five railroads to Sioux Falls and also developed many businesses for the area. When South Dakota became a state in 1889 he became our first Senator. He later went on to serve two terms in Congress to protect the interest of South Dakota residents. When Pettigrew died in 1926 he left his home to the city of … (0 comments)
