|Dennis Jeeps was born in the house called "Glenifer"
at 23 Green St. and lived there all his life. It was not a house of
architectural importance, but it had history, was old and formed
part of the character of the village. Being farmers, the Jeeps has
a large yard at the rear with barns and outbuildings. This proved
too tempting for new house development and the easiest way to get
at that land was simply to knock down the old house in the way -
despite the fact that alternatives existed.
It's Ironic that Dennis Jeeps, who took such an interest in the
village should have his own little piece of it swept entirely away
with hardly a murmur.
