Take advantage of the last warm weekend of the year to get out and visit six beautiful historic homes in Enos Park! The tour of “open” homes starts at noon. (refer to flyer below)
Following the home tour you can enjoy the “Quarter Auction”, a fundraiser for the Northside Children’s Library. Doors open 1:00 p.m. at the Third Presbyterian Church (1030 N. 7th St.). Bidding will start at 2 p.m. Register and get your paddles for $2. Refreshments will be available.
After the auction you’re invited to an “Apple Open House” dinner of pork & apple stew, apple salad(s), apple desserts, apple cider (hard & not), and other delicious apple related dishes!! Our host will be Joe & Susan Eby (3100 Red Bud Lane, Springfield). The dinner is part of the Community Missions Network’s commitment to help fund the instillation of a water line to the open lot to be used as the Enos Park apple orchard.

Ryan and Dawn Mobley are married and have 5 kids. Ryan works for Habitat for Humanity and Dawn is a stay at home mom. They were interested in Enos Park because of the vision the in wanting to restore the neighborhood and also because of the discounted house and the history. They also really enjoy the community throughout Enos Park.
History of the house
The house is Victorian style early 1900’s. It is around 3,000 square feet and has 3 floors and a basement.
What they’ve done…
Ryan and Dawn are doing the renovating themselves and also hiring electricians and other people to help out with the process. They said the biggest challenge is staying on budget.
1) Giant Sliding Door- this door separates the living room from the spare room. But by opening this door it connects the two rooms.
2) Fireplace- older style fireplace, shows the historical presence in the house. Its located in the dining room off the kitchen.
3) Staircase- classic, wrap around staircase with 40 total steps from bottom to top floor.
Ryan and Dawn are very happy with the house and excited to finish the renovations. Expected finish- Summer 2013!!
