I know you don’t believe it, but I’m rather certain the house you were looking for in Fayette is located on N. Gorham Street.
I called Elwyn Bates lest year and he agreed. His mother lived there.
The house has been completely renovated. It’s photo does not look like the present house. However, Elwyn and I remember the original look of the place and it was like your photograph. The upper and lower porches are gone. It’s not dark with the light gold trim anymore either.
It is the home located behind what was Addie Ford’s house on the corner. Chris and Tonya Lantz own the Addie Ford residence.
I realize why folks would not recognize the mystery home in the photograph. The place has really changed in looks.
