|Is this house the oldest surviving home in St. Vincent...?|
This house, located all by itself in a woods that covers its entire block, is just west of the St. Vincent School. To be a bit more specific, it's near the southwest corner of the block. I went by that house hundreds of times when I lived in St. Vincent growing up. It was near the corner of our own road going north, and as long as I can remember, no one lived there.
I wondered who had built it, why no one lived there now, and why that particular block of land was never cleared or anyone else built on it.
As I prepared for the St. Vincent town reunion earlier this year, I was making new connections with people who have old connections with the town itself through the St. Vincent Memories' Facebook page. I learned new things from them about the town. This very house came up in conversation, and I attempted to find out something definitive.
