A popular feature in local newspapers during the early 1950's was to use photos taken from a light plane flying over the many homesteads in the reading area, run them in the paper, and give the picture to the person who could correctly identify the house. The Oblong Oracle featured our house in November 1953, when my wife Sue was nine years old. This picture spurred this response from Mrs. Arthur
The piece, as written and published November 7, 1953, is as follows:
Dear Mr. Editor
Your mystery farm this week was my home. My father, Harvey Hopper, built the house 50 years ago. I remember as a small child (am I telling my age?) I watched the entire structure being erected, climbing to the highest places, swinging my legs over, rolling in the bath tub before the legs were attached until my father caught me and gave me a lesson, where it was most effective, as to what little girls should, and should not do.
