Millard House

First House

First House

We bought our first house in 1972, just a few months after I returned from Southeast Asia and discharged (honorably) from the U.S. Army.  Looking back, we must have had a lot of faith in the future as my steady job of only two months was in a new division of a relatively small and young manufacturing company … Valmont Industries in Valley, NE.

The house was located in Millard, NE, a town in what is now Southwest Omaha, and we lived right next to the mayor.  The day we closed on the house, Omaha annexed Millard and made it part of Omaha.  The next day, we had a new address.

Except for being 44 years later, the house in the photo looks just like it did when we bought it.  Built in 1938, this two bedroom/one bath ranch was solidly built.  Our second son was born the following May, making this house a family landmark.  Good memories.

Thought for the Day:  Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.                                                                                         Dr. Seuss
