Our house is named Tred-y-Noch which means house on the hill in Welch. My grandparents Owensville and Mary Farnham picked out two one quarter-acre lots in 1899 while on their honeymoon and built a cottage by 1901. During the years improvements were made that included dormers, a hand-dug cellar, a sleeping porch, and in 1940 a new two-car garage with a sleeping loft on top. In 1950 my father Bill Sr. became the new steward of the house and added another dormer, and in the 1960’s he bought cottage B from the Callanan’s. This added another four lots of land. In 1972 Bill Jr. took over the stewardship and added in 2000 a major renovation that included a new kitchen, living room, and garage.
