Long Description:

Originally constructed by Frank Gromack in 1946.
Mr. Gromack ran a tractor sales and service business out of it until he retired in the mid 1970's.

Passing through several sets of hands until it was finally sold and converted into a place of residence in the mid 1980's.

The former owners had it on and off the selling block for about five years until we came along in December 2004. We started w/ being pre-approved, but when we found this we wound up going to 15 lending institutes before landing a loan. Appraisal was fun. Fun like root canal fun.

Anyway, here we are in our hut! Come join us here.
