Our Home

The following homes were featured in an article in the newspaper
“The Norfolk Daily News”.  These homes were featured under the title of
“Home of the Week”. They had them listed by number and this is the number
you will see below.

It gives various details about the home,  photo(s), who lives there, and the address
for the house as it was at the time of its original publication

If you like to have a photocopy of the story about the home please contact us here at AGS.  We can make a photocopy of the article and get it back to you.  We will need your mailing address to send it back to you.

There will be a charge for the photocopy (library charges) and mailing (postal service charges). The final cost will be reasonable.

The listing below will be by number, date of paper and then who was living there at the time of publication. Name of the city will be after the name when it has an address other than Norfolk.

So here are the “Homes of the Week”    

No number on these when published in the newspaper.  So a date will be the only identification on these.

Note: The May 14, 1945 listing is the beginning of the series of “Homes of the Week”
