"Growing up, my sister and I would eagerly try to catch a glimpse of this house, as we drove down Peachtree Battle on the way to our grandparents' house, who live on Montview Drive. This house is where our beloved grandfather grew up, and our Mom frequently told us stories about going to visit her grandparents there. She and her three brothers would occasionally stop by to see their grandparents and have a snack on their afternoon walk home from school. My favorite story that my Mom tells us is of how her grandmother would hide behind the refrigerator, while she snuck ice cream. Although my sister and I have never been inside this beautiful home, we feel like we know it well and that we are a part of its wonderful history."
