Can you believe the realtor states this home is a Victorian built in 1966? 1966?!  That aside, the realtor does get it right when he notes that the fixer upper has tons of potential. The exterior  is outstanding with its tower, porches and stained glass, and the interior has hardwood floors and natural woodwork. Roland Krowlek (1933-2010) and his wife Eleanor Jones Krowlek lived in this home for decades with their sons Shane, Dean, Rusty, James and Craig. Mr. Roland served in the U.S. during the Korean War from 1951 to 1955, and later operated the Gulf and Sunoco service stations in Washburn. As an avid NASCAR fan, lover of old and new cars, and member of the Antique Automobile Club of America, he was probably the one who built the garage on the property — in 1966! Mr. Krowlek was likely who, unfortunately, installed the home’s dropped ceilings, too.
