Connecting Walvoords & Walvoorts together Past, Present, and Future

Photo of the Week, June 4, 2012

This week’s photo was sent to me by Ann (Walvoord) Graff.  She is a great-granddaughter of William O. Walvoord (1842-1916) from the Nebraska branch of the Walvoords.  This is a photo of the store that William O. Walvoord built in Holland, Nebraska.

This photo dates from about 1895.  The section of the building to the right was built first.  The section with the porch and awning was added to the south-side later.  And in a later photo this section was lengthened.
