MINERAL RIDGE, Ohio (WKBN) – People up in Mineral Ridge were treated to a little slice of history Sunday by one local homeowner.

The Moss Ancestral Home, in the 1400 block of Burnett Street, was open Sunday for the public to see.

The current owner of this 1843 home, Mary Lou Moss-Godleski, was in search of the house that her great, great grandfather lived in when he immigrated to the United States from Luxembourg in 1855.

She found the home in complete disrepair, but now the remodeling is complete.

“I do not charge anything for visitors. We welcome everyone and we try to give the best tour we can, and give them some history of the town and history of the area because it’s really rich in history because it’s so old,” Moss-Godleski said.

She went on to say she thinks it’s important that all communities have something like this to remember where they came from.
