GEORGE AND JESSIE ATKINS--971 WEST THIRD. George and Jessie Atkins had this QUEEN ANNE ARCHITECTURE home constructed in 1894. It was sold three times with the last owner losing it at a sheriff's sale in 1916. The house was sold three more times with bank repossessing it in 1929. In 1941 the Sandry family converted it into apartments. The home remained in their possession until 1994 when it was purchased by the Schrobilgens who are remembered for decorating it elaborately at Christmas.
