Arthur Allen Sr at home on Huffer Road

Hilton, NY


  Like many city dwellers, Grandpa and Grandma Allen rented houses most of their married life. When Uncle Art moved his family to Hilton New York , he fulfilled a promise that he had made to his mother years before - that he would make it possible for them to own a house. He gave them a plot of land next to the house he was building on Huffer Road, and then built them a small log house. They would live in it until their deaths in the 1970's.

Here are two photographs of Grandpa on his land at Huffer Road. At the top he is moving stone, in the background is Uncle Art and Aunt Bernie's recently completed house. Below Grandpa is getting a charcoal fire ready for a family meal, probably in back of his house.

All the grandchildren have pleasant memories of Grandpa and Grandma's house on Huffer road.
