Dale & Dina 2012

It’s always fun to welcome back previous guests – and this time they brought friends! Dale & Dina were here in 2008 and this year returned with 6 of their friends. We had a parking lot full of beautiful motorcycles, and a house full of fun and laughter.

Here are some pictures of these “fabulous” guests!

Fabulous Guests!

WLFI-TV visit!

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Today a reporter and videographer from the nearby television station stopped by to shoot video of the house and interview us for “The Most Interesting Homes” in the Greater Lafayette area. Reporter Liz Nichols and videographer Jamie Long spent about an hour and a half, and got some great video. We even showed them the “secret” pencil marks from 1897 by the the coal delivery man!! The segment will air on Wednesday, and be on the station website after that.

Here’s the link to the story.

We are honored, and thanks to everyone who voted for us on the WLFI.com website! The White House on Park Avenue is a beautiful home and we appreciate the care over the years by the Kannal family and descendants, and the previous owners Tom and Beth Ryan.
