I was showing a property in Story City Iowa last week and decided to talk a short drive across the intestate and check out where I went to school in Roland Iowa and then venture to see a home I lived in for 3 years of my childhood. I found my way to the countryside and found the home, the creek we used to swim and fish in and the home I lived in.
It was kind of fun going by and remembering the fun we had in the barns and fields the creative ways we made fun out of just about anything. It is funny what I thought was a big hill wasn't has big as I thought or the long bike rides we road were not half as long as I remembered. I guess when you are young things seem larger than they are. As far as the home? Still there they added on a garage and painted the home. The buildings? Looks like most of them are there but, in poor condition and they no longer have a lane/drive just the front drive to the front of the home to the garage. Glad to see that someone was still living in the home and I sure hope they make memories as I did. If you need a home to make those memories in a home in the Des Moines Metro let me know as I can certainly help you find your home.
