A home, not just a house, steeped in Meridian history. Beautiful, well appointed, a treasure in the heart of old north Meridian. The Rosenbaums. Well loved and devoted to their community, the Rosebaums were very active in many civic and social organizations. Mr. Rosenbaum was our former Mayor. Mrs. Rosenbaum was very active in our school system and on the school Board. Their family has chosen their treasures, and has decided to liquidate the rest of the contents of this wonderful home.
