  • Cemetery Street project finished— New families make village home

    Two young families are moving to Yellow Springs, thanks to local land trust nonprofit Home, Inc. The Hange and Schaade families will complete the four-unit neighborhood on Cemetery Street, a collaboration between Home, Inc. and the Village of Yellow Springs. Pictured are Patrick and Brandy Hange, pregnant with Nico June, now 5 months, and Nolan, now 3, in front of their new home during an earlier phase of construction. Also pictured in a family photo are Matthew and Elizabeth Schaade with children Rowyn, 4; Gavin, 6; Marley, 3; and Vaeda, 1. An open house for the two families and their new homes will be held Friday, Oct. 28, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., at 134 and 136 Cemetery St. (Submitted Photos courtesy of Home, Inc.)
