When we bought this house we also got a crate full of papers and blueprints that are the archives for our historic home. I was surprised to find that most of the papers are old newspaper clippings about John North Willys. Although he wasn’t the longest owner of the house, he was the best known and the house is still referred to as the Willys mansion. I though it might be fun to share some of these old clippings and tidbits.
Mr Willys was the first U. S. ambassador to Poland. The newspaper clipping does not say what paper it is from but I would guess it is the Toledo Blade. It is dated March 1, 1930.
