Sharon and John took extra steps to host a Meet & Greet with Karen by having a promo card designed, printed and attached to Karen’s doorbell piece and distributed to at least a hundred neighbors. Then a set a table of snacks and waited. Only family members showed up and Councilmember Michael Rohrscheib who lives several doors away.
Not all was lost, however, since I’ve been wanting to inspect the inside of their home, looking for evidence that it was once a floor of the Lot Wilbur mansion which was moved in pieces from its 2nd Street location to “around 5th and Glenn” reported the Snohomish Tribune in 1946.
John, a retired architect showed me around the basement, checking out the joists, but he was not immediately convinced. I promised I’d send along this story I wrote in July 2012.
I plan to check back with him, in the meantime thanks to both Sharon and John for opening their whole home.
