1105 Madison Street, Lockport, IL 60441

My Grandma, Ruth Elizabeth Lyon Rowley, grew up in this home.
My Mom, Sue Rowley, grew up here also.

I've been inside once, that I can remember, and would love to simply wander the rooms if the chance ever presents itself again. I do remember that there is a huge beautiful pocket door from the foyer into the parlor and that the front stairs have beautiful woodwork.
My Grandma told me that at the top of the front stairs there is a closet. In the closet sat a wooden box. She used to love to sit alone in the closet on that box and read.
A little girl in a book fort~ I can relate to that!
