Title Home is Where the Heart Is
Description The second level of the garage houses the family room, complete with TV set, pool table, soda machine, and a driving range for Jay, who is an avid golfer. The Boy Scouts made good use of it as well and our 21 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. At Christmas time we covered the home with white lights to blend in with the historic remodeled Main Street. A turret room over the entry hall of the home was converted into an artist's workshop for me to continue with my hobby of painting. The huge white birch and maple tree on the front lawn have added beauty to the area for over 100 years. We have entertained many people at parties, open houses, and on historical tours. The N.S. Nielson family enjoyed coming here for family reunions recently. With such a inviting atmosphere, we decided to have a "Winkelman Bed and Breakfast Inn," which we operated until we moved to Orem in September of 1995. The decision to move from this beloved home was to enable us to be close to our daughters, Arlene Tidwell and Pamela Rowbotham, and to our son, A.J., who is planning to move here soon. Jay and I have traveled to every state in the union and to many foreign countries, including the Caribbean, Mexico. Russia, Germany, Mediterranean, Egypt, Turkey, England, France, and Italy. As much as we have enjoyed traveling, our joy and greatest pleasure has been living in these two old historical homes built 100 years ago. Both homes are listed on the State and National Register. A house truly does become a home when you put your heart and soul into it as we and the original owners have done. We hope the Larsen and Nielson homes will always be a refuge for those who dwell within. Sources of Information: Utah Historical Booklet, Mt.
