Where Was Noah's Ark?


I am am a g/child of Noah Minter & Hazle Mae (Cason) McDannold & Diane Beers Brown’s sister. I was one of 5(?) of Noah & Hazle’s 10 grandchildren who were born, in this house. It was located on OLD Madison Pike/SR 17/3-L Highway, south of Chisel Bridge (RR bridge) & Warren Avenue & north of Scott Sub. East side of Pioneer Park, Banklick Creek & OLD 3-L Highway.

Our grandparents purchased the house & land (originally more than 17 acres) c. 1921. Jeanetta, our mother, was 3 at the time.

During the years our g/parents owned it, the house has been: Noah’s Ark Tourist Home, Noah’s Ark Dairy (Noah & sons, Alfred & Harvey helped deliver milk to Latonia & Independence, while daughter, Jeanetta drove the dairy truck, both before & after school.) G-ma raised chickens & sold eggs. After 1960, it became Jeanetta’s Beauty Salon with many local ladies getting their hair done there.

No children left & surviving g/kids now number 5.
