Among the usual debris of old shingles, some insulation, an old mattress (yuck) and some wood was this musty, dusty old schoolbook dating from 1908.
That actually pre-dates the house which was built in 1935. But looking in the front page, we can see that it actually belonged to Frank Eichenberg who originally built the house and lived here until the mid-70s. The Eichenberg family was prominent in the Tillsonburg community as they owned the local Chevrolet dealership for many years.
This book on ancient history was originally printed in 1906 and Frank used it while attending the Tillsonburg High School in 1908.
A piece of history right in our attic. I love old houses.
