Welcome and Congrats on your new to you TH. Sounds like you got a great deal, and was searching the right Craigslist Site at the right time. A lot of great bargains to be found there. A definite Win-Win for both parties.
Aurora, Il. Hmmm. I remember it well ( back then ). Lived there in the mid 60's ( grade school years ). Went to Abraham Lincoln School and lived on Woodlawn Ave. Even knew a boy named Scott in the neighborhood. Hmmm! A lot of great childhood memories of that town. Of course, many, many years ago.
Once again Welcome, enjoy your TH and
