My house has a name.
The archives of ActiveRain (you do search for information topics, don't you?) indicate posts on this subject stretching back over five years. Chrissy Doremus yesterday queried the added value of a house name on your listing http://activerain.com/blogsview/3372727/what-s-in-a-house-name-
My house name has historical significance.
My grandfather visited the US in 1910 on a working holiday, aa a sixteen year old, where he traveled from west to east over a 5 month period. He was in New York when the Earth passed through the tail of Halley's Comet.
You really have to be around to see this wonder in 1986. (He died in 1985) In 1986 Halley's Comet was barely visible, being its furthest away possible. His stories of the 1910 event stay with me.
During Grandfather's travels, including Utah, he saw many homes with names, shingles and signs.
On his return to Australia he built a shack (corrugated iron walls and roof on gum tree stumps) that was later to be my first home. He named this structure "Sunshine Villa". I remember well the beaten sheet iron piece bearing that name, rusty, with nails pulling through.
I have been in Sandy UT, (Historic Sandy even) now for six years, and the name on my home proclaims "Sunshine Villa" appropriate for another sugar area (this time beet not cane).
Historic for me certainly ~ but for anyone else? If they will listen, I can explain.
