The house in the picture is known as the Eaton House. It is located in Albert-Lea Minnesota. It was built in 1857 and for a period of time was known as the best house in the city. Years later it was used as a library. It was then sold for use as a residential home. About 1935 my grandparents (Ben and Florence Fredrickson) bought it and made it their home. It remained in the family until about 1985. The house in the back was known as the 'little house' and it was my parent's home before moving to Elwood, Indiana in 1948.
