Holly Higbee-Jansen 2/18/2005 5:29:59 AM

Stephen:
This looks like a house off the 101 in Nipomo. Is that it? Very creative! #1110935

Stephen Zacker 2/18/2005 11:51:52 AM

Hi Holly,

It was just off 101 in Santa Maria when I took it, but it had been moved when I was out last time. I heard it had been moved near a winery? so that's probably it. It was moved from Santa Maria out by 101 to be built into a restaurant. Never happened. #1111841
