Squint Shot 022812

Here are a couple more shots of the front of the old Defendorf house - both of the southeast corner. Be sure to look back over the last few weeks for inside and outside pictures.
As a little extra history, this house stopped being the "Defendorf" house long before it was moved in the 1920s. In 1916, Dr. Byron Defendorf has sold his residence at Chelsea and may move to Fenton, where his youngest son, Dr. Ernest Defendorf, is now located, having moved there from Chelsea recently, as reported in the local newspaper. When Dr. Defendorf retired from practice in Fowlerville, he sold the house to William Peek, and then moved to Chelsea.
