Notes from the sellers:

Jerome was home. For more than 70 years this house has been in the family. It was built as a Company House when the mine was at its peak. You don't find this type of construction today. It's been standing for over 100 years, and should be around for a very long time. Dad bought the house by sending his WWII paychecks home to his parents. He hand dug the cellar, carrying the dirt out bucket by bucket. His favorite bit of trivia would be to tell you that he dumped the last car of coal that came out of the mine.

Jerome is a quiet town with quick access to the hustle and bustle of Johnstown and Somerset. Work there and return home to the tranquility Jerome offers. It has a large level lot and off street parking with a garage.


Growing up in Jerome in the 1950's and 1960's we were lucky to have safety and freedom to explore Jerome and the surrounding countryside.

My favorite memory is Christmas.

Santa always decorated the tree Christmas Eve. We would leave cookies and milk for Santa hoping he would come and not leave coal in our stockings. In the morning as we sneaked quietly down stairs we would tiptoe into the living room to see if Santa had come. As we hoped the living room was a glow with the decorated tree. Below the tree a platform with the Christmas village and four trains around the tree. Christmas presents stacked on the couch and chairs. I remember running up the stairs yelling he was hear!! He was hear! Wake up Mom and Dad! Christmas Day was spent with family and the smells of Christmas.

Our Mom and Dad filled this home with love for 70 years.

My wish for our home is that whoever purchases this home is blessed with love and a lifetime of memories. 


One of the best things of living in a duplex was having our grandma living right next door. She was always there for us, when Mom and Dad had to work. At holiday time, Grandma didn't have far to go, or have to go out in bad weather to spend the holidays with us. No matter how bad the weather was, we always had a holiday meal together.

In the summer we enjoyed picnics in the back yard and when it was the fourth of July, we didn't have to fight traffic to go see fireworks, we just sat in the back yard and waited to see them. In the fall, Dad would make a fire in the back yard and we would roast potatoes in a fire, plus i don't want to forget toasting marshmallows over that fire.

The yard was big enough for dad to plant a big garden and mom to plant lots of flowers that she loved. The neighbors always complimented both Moms and Dad for their gardening skills. Living there on R.R. Street we always had good neighbors, and still do today, never any problems and was also a quiet street with lots of parking for family get together's.
