April's Story 5 East Gate

My husband was about to leave for work as he said, “Oh, by the way, a guy will be stopping by today to assess the house because I am changing insurance companies.”

“No problem, I’m home all day.”

Sure enough, a young man stopped by, introducing himself as a historian. When houses are this old, he informed me, they usually send a historian because it’s being assessed for replacement value. He spent most of the day walking around evaluating the house. By about 4 p.m., he had finished his work, found me in the kitchen, and asked if I would be interested in knowing anything about the house.
