Ben and Ella had a large frame house with a long hallway down the middle. Their furniture was wicker in the parlor which included a hugh harpsocord piano. The front porch ran the width of the house and had two porch swings. No grass was allowed to grow in the yard and yards had to be swept with a stick broom in the same direction every Saturday. There was a brick wall approx. 3 feet high around the front yard. The road leading from their house to US 231 is BARNES ROAD.
