Benjamin Franklin Thomas, Sr. built this house in the late 1800's, and lived in it until he died about 1910. It has long since passed out of ownership by the Thomas Family, and was undergoing restoration when this picture was taken in 2004. While no member of the Thomas family now resides in Traer, the town is regarded very warmly by those of us who remember coming to visit our grandparents in the 50's. For us, it was a magic place. And still is. I'm sorry, the location is approximate to about 500'.
