1. Why did they build so close to the road?

    1. That’s the way it was done years ago; times were much slower (no cars or trucks). Folks would stop and talk to the families on the porch, and the roads were just lanes, much smaller.

  2. Zoning Restrictions. Other people in wide open spaces has plenty of room to grow.

  3. Is this on N. Merrick ave ?

  4. Yes My mother in law , Erin Andrews ,was born in this house and lived there till her Marriage to James H Kelley, Sr. they moved back into the house when my husband was three years old. He lived there until we were married. W L Andrews was her father.
