Geneva, New York - my first home!


Since it’s my birthday week I thought it would be fun to post the sketch of the first house I ever lived in!!

It is located in Geneva, New York, upstate in the finger lakes area.    My dad moved our family’s belongings (and my two brothers!) while my mom was in the hospital having me.  We lived there for two years before moving to sunny Florida! 

It has a very cool history… it was built in 1822 by Gen. Hugh Dobbins, an officer in the Revolutionary War. Until about 1865 the private residence doubled as a stagecoach stop and post office on the Buffalo to Albany run. There is still a small office with pigeonholes for the mail delivery.

Every house tells a story…what’s yours?
