This is the original Joseph/Elizabeth Petty house in Perry county, Ohio. This is the house from the front. The shiny, balls on posts are trophies from the Civil War, now in the possession of Marjory Petty Austen. When she visited the woman who had the cannonballs, she used to have to paint them every year. She had saved two and gave them to Marjory. This is how the place looked when her family moved there after the turn of the century. Josiah's widow, Harriet Coleman Petty lived here until her death.
