My Mom and Dad bought this old delapidated Tank House in the Rucker district of Gilroy and rebuilt and modified it into the house I was raised in. Ed

Hi Ed-what a wonderful image- love the house!
Hi Cheryl, thanks for your input. It was a really neat old house built in the 1870s. My folks completely rebuilt it. I’ll show pictures of what it finally ended up looking like. Ed

Hi Kate, yes I have lots of memories from the old house that was originally built in the 1870s. My Mom and Dad completely rebuilt it inside and out. I liked it the old way better. LOL Ed
Really cool Ed..so much potential here
Hi Sarah, thanks, Ed
This is such awesome stuff to see Ed. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Carol, this old house was built in the 1870s and I loved it with the old windmill and water tank on top. My folks rebuilt it, took down the wind mill and water tank and turned it into something totally different. I liked it the old way. Thanks for your input. Ed
Another great memory, Ed…….a great keeper.
Hi Joe, thanks. This old house was built in the 1870s. My folks completely rebuilt it, tore down the old windmill that used to be on it, and also took down the water tank. I remember all this when I was a kid. That little kid in front of the house is me. I liked it the old way.Thanks for your input. I appreciate it. Ed
Neat old image, I see the tank but do not understand why it is called a tank house??
Hi Barn, I think it was called a tank house because of the water tank on top. There were many of these old houses in the area where I grew up and they were all called Tank Houses by the old timers. It also had a windmill on it. This one was built in the 1870s. My folks completely rebuilt it. They tore down the windmill, took off the water tank and when they were finished, it was a different house. I liked it the old way. Thanks for your comments. Ed
fantastic piece of personal history that you are able to retain…..
Hi Gerry, Thanks, Ed
