Grandma of Akron built a house like no other

Keturah Hershberger was confident she could build a house.

If the Lord didn’t want her to do it, He wouldn’t have provided so many beautiful stones.

Or so much natural sand.

It came to her in a vision as she gazed into her backyard in East Akron: There was plenty of room out there to add a cottage. So, in 1947, the great-grandmother began to build a cottage.

To quote Proverbs: “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is erected. By knowledge his chambers are filled with all the precious and pleasant riches.”

However long it took, she would hold out because she had Job’s patience.
