1972 Ralph Fowler House

At the recent funeral for Dorothy Peckens-Pfiefle, a reader of this website was given a copy of the article published in 1972 of Ralph Fowler's house, located in the northwest quadrant, of the structure's possible removal to Bell Oak.  In fact, this house was demolished instead of being moved.

The house sat at about what is now the corner of North Ann Street and West Grand River, where for a couple of winters an ice skating rink had been created.  After the Peckens no longer had this property, some may remember this corner where used cars were displayed.

Information like this -- and so much more -- can be found in my two books, The Fowlerville Chronicles and Through the Eyes of a Country Editor.  (How's that for a hard-sell job!)

As a favor, I would love to ask anyone having articles and/or newspaper clippings from days gone-by, please contact me and I'll add them to the site.  It is great to keep this information available for anyone doing research.
