The Story of 705 E. Madison Ave. Springfield, OH 45503
By- Fred & Barbara Shuirr
We would just like to say that we have had and have good people as neighbors on both sides of us. The Pennington’s (westside) have lived next door for a few decades and now have grandchildren. When Fred’s son, Ian, was living there with his wife, Olivia, and their young children, the Pennington’s let them use their wi-fi to have Netflix access. Our young grandchildren had access to child programming because of the kindness of our neighbors. Our neighbors on the East side, the Plantz, are also wonderful. They are a responsible young couple in their first home with a smart young daughter. I loved seeing them sitting out in the backyard with their daughter on a nice Saturday evening with a lighted torch in the back yard and searching the sky for shooting stars. I told them to remember to make a wish. Mr. Plantz told me that they had been to the annual monarch butterfly fest earlier in the day August 24, 2019 at the National Trails Park District’s Buck Creek Nature Park. It is within walking distance. The house on Southeast corner of Madison : Murray, belonged to a great old guy, Max, who looked out for all of us in the neighborhood. We were glad when Max’s house went up for sale, that our neighbors, the Pennington’s bought it for their daughter and grandchildren.
