  1. My parents bought the house that sat on where Ollie Fretter had his first Appliance store on Telegraph, north of 5 mile. They had it moved to 15394 Fenton on a large lot. I remember watching them move it. 1960ish. They bought it from Mr Fretter for $500. Years later the plumbing was replaced. Toilet tank stamped 1927. Is there a centennial plaque for something like this in the near future? Beautiful old home 🙂

    1. That is awesome! Do you have any old photos you could share with us some time? As far as the historical plaques go, there’s two types that available for residential homes. The first one is for the site itself. Since the house was moved, it probably wouldn’t qualify for that. The second historical plaque would be if the home had a significant impact to Redford’s history, had historical/rare architectural and originally intact features, or if it was built by a famous architect or lived in by a famous person. Hope that helps answer your question. – Amanda

  2. Looking for info on a house I grew up in. 15394 Fenton. My dad bought it from Ollie Fretter and had it moved to its present location. I believe it was built un 1920s. Mr Fretter needed it moved for his new appliance store in 1960ish. It was beautiful inside with mahogany wood and plaster walls.
