----- Old world (prior
to the TS2 revolution) -----
This house is also referred
to as the Betterville House, and the reason lies in its history. The lot
was addressed 2 Simmerville back in the flat world, originally it belonged
to the hood of Betterville. But 118 years before TS2 the owner, who was
a Bettervillian business man Brodale Fresco, had a plan. The lot was given
to his son Felius Fresco, and donated to the hood of Simmerville. Located
at the boarder to Betterville, the Frescos had created a natural connection
for trades between the two hoods. The story tells that the plan failed,
but it still is interesting as the house is one of Simmerville's finer
builds even today (40 simdays after TS2).
Felius Fresco and his wife
Elvira Jones built the first house. Elvira wasn't a local, but with local
roots, as her mother was the daughter of Scherus Camp who was the son of
Charold Camp & Elihild Mervil, who was born by Mervils at Simmerville
7. In addition, even Charold Camp's grandmother was the Stella Mervil who
grew up at Simmerville 77 (Mervil Family's main residence), but married
to Harrold Stinc at Hope Cave 1. So, Felius Fresco was pretty sure he had
now found a wife that would become useful when he and his father wanted
to establish trades via Simmerville 2. They had 3 children, Ell, Bronet
and Luda, but only Ell who inherited this house stayed in Simmerville.
Ell Fresco married non-local
Leun Miller, she took over her father's business, but they didn't do so
well. They had 6 children, which meant the heritage was split in small
bits. Historians say that was the end of the Fresco family's plans in Simmerville.
The oldest son, Amandus Fresco (died 27 years before TS2) go this house.
He married Yvonna Hedgewood from the hood of Betterville, she brough needed
capital to this household. But she must also have worked against the original
plan, or the trades were poor anyway, because we find that sewing was now
the major income of this household (2/5). They also grew tomatoes and Amandus
was a musician. They had 5 children, and the oldest got this house.
Mabell Fresco (73 years old
at TS2) married Eddie Jones from Betterville. It seems like even if this
lot was now addressed Simmerville, it must have kept its strong ties to
Betterville. The household did worse economically, they had 4 children,
and through the next generations it all fell apart. Mabell's granddaughter
Mambina Fresco realized that they could not keep this big house. 3 years
before TS2 she moved to the downtown slum with her family of 6, including
her 10 years old son, Albert Fresco. We have nit been able to trace them.
The house was bought by the
Simpley sisters, Stella Rochetta and Rabarabra. Their household transmitted
to TS2 and today they still reside the house as elders with their respective
