Key Quotes:

  • “I do have windows. I had three of them. Now there’s just one left because I had to replace some of the glass. But, someone with a diamond ring had written Jacob Atwood in the window. So evidently, that’s how he got the idea of that. Why the name is, exactly.” – Bill Hirsch
  • “The trouble with the house is that the people who owned it were very wealthy. So, whenever anything came into fashion or was invented, they installed it immediately, which was good for them. But, by 2002 when I bought it, it had gas from 1867. It had electricity from 1898 about or a little bit later.” – Bill Hirsch
  • “Then, after the vaccination, I felt a lot of hope. I felt better. So, I opened up all the way and I’ve been busier since I opened up than I have in the 18-20 years that I’ve been there.” – Bill Hirsch
