Langouts or earlier added a bathroom where the front door facing Stanton had been and moved the door to its present location on Lexington.  Syd Davis filled in 2 corners in the living room and enlarged the kitchen.         1967 - Syd Davis made a large 2 story Colonial addition for a family room, bed room and attached garage on the south  (Don Curless, contactor).   2012/13 - Judy & Iain Reid remodeled far end of house to add 3 car garage.  Also added workroom, full bath, half bath, mudroom & playroom.  They also officially changed their address to 802 Lexington since the front door & driveway are now both on Lexington.  The original front door was on Stanton but it was changed to Lexington many years ago, which has long been rather confusing.
