Corner Of Clyde And Patrick

I got a bit nostalgic after seeing a photo of Shingle Creek so I drove down to Kissimmee to visit the old neighborhood. This is the house I grew up in. It is now a management company and is in waaaaay better shape now than when I was growing up. I wanted to take photos of the old Courthouse while I was down there but the rain started and was unrelenting so I will go back some evening for that. The house was built in 1910 by a steamboat captain who plied Lake Toho and down the Kissimee River. My parents lived in the house from 1960 (the year I was born) until 1989 when my father passed away. It managed to house the entire family - 2 parents and 8 kids - "comfortably" until one-by-one all of the kids got married, went to Vietnam, or just generally moved out. Kissimmee has changed drastically from the Kissimmee of my youth. There is very little in the town that exists the way I remember it. For a 1915 view of the house please click here
