2012-07-08 18:02:46   I grew up in this house—at that time is was 18 Helen St. and where the 2 windows are was at that time a porch (the 1st people to own it after my folks sold it changed the porch into a closet). About 3-4 yrs ago my sister and I got to go in (it was up for sale again and we knew the realtors), that was a great "memory ride" for both of us.....Most of the rooms were still as we remembered them as kids, except for our bedroom (a window was taken out and the porch was a closet), and the outside needed a paint job and just some TLC. I loved that house when I was growing up!!!!!! Robin Dorsch Arens Winneconne Wisconsin —
