I am so glad that University of Louisville has such an amazing archive. And doubly thankful that the son of the original owner of this house (Les Shively) was the Alumni director for the university for almost 45 years.
I found, today, a file on Les Shively in those UofL archives and in that file was the original deed to our house. Very exciting to see all that info, the signatures of the original owners (Joshua and his wife Dora) and it made me laugh since it was for $500.
More soon - but no photos this time (no photography in the archives at the university)
