The Davises' Place

I moved into my home a year ago now, but in that time I've learned that I'm actually living in someone else's home - The Davises'!

Everywhere we go and everyone we meet refers to our home as the Davises' place. They aren't even the family we purchased the home from. In fact they moved from this home decades ago. But they definitely made their impression upon the community (in a good way) and to this day the home is referred to as "theirs".

My husband asked me the other day, "Do you think our house will always be referred to as the Davises'?". And yes, I think it will, no matter how long we live here or how involved we become. But I don't mind: It's nice to know that a family so memorable and well-loved preceded us here.

Is your home referred to as someone else's? If so, what's the story? If not, do you think you would mind?
