3189 South 20th Street  -  Abilene, Texas
Ray and Jackie Smyth's home from October 1958 to November 1962  -  Photo - Circa 1960

The house was only 2 bedrooms but, all the rooms were large and it was a real modern designed home. It had 1100 square feet and cost $11,000.00 so housing in those days cost about $10.00 a square foot and our 20 year loan at 4.5 percent interest plus annual taxes and insurance made the payments $88.00 each month. The 59 Oldsmobile in the photo was our car.
