“Home” is more than where we’ve come from; it’s where we build our lives.
On a snowy day in 2003, my husband and I moved our mostly unwrapped wedding gifts and hand-me-down furniture from our Eagle Creek apartment to a little old house in the heart of Whitestown.
We landed here at the peak of the housing market, just after Duke Realty announced its plans for the Anson development. Prior to starting a search for a house just after our wedding, our only knowledge of Whitestown or Zionsville was that the towns shared an exit on I-65.
We chose this area for its small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities nearby; an easy commute to downtown, where we both worked; and the promise of a real estate boom that would (allegedly) turn a quick profit on our starter home after just a few years.
