A Remnant from the Past

William Green - old wooden name sign

William Green - old wooden name sign

DESCRIPTION: the top half of a piece of wood with William Green painted on it
DATE: could be anything from the late 1800s to the 1930s or so
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Alan Phillips
STORY/ABOUT:  I have mentioned ‘Springvale’ at Gumeracha before, as that is the house I grew up in. This wooded name is another one of those heirlooms that my family inherited with the house. The Green family first lived in ‘Springvale’ back in the late 1880s, followed by the Butler family (I’m unsure of when they bought the house), and my family (the Phillips’) bought it in the 1980s.
