Ron Smith has been a Frankfort resident all his life, and some of his most formative years were spent at his childhood home in the Village.

The house, once located at 117 Maple St., was recently demolished to make way for a new home. But before it was torn down, Ron was given a rare opportunity to visit one last time.  

 “We lived on Oregon Street for a very short time, lived on Pacific Street for a very short time, but almost all of the time we lived with my grandparents in that house,” he said.
