On Monday’s episode of Home Town, Erin Napier becomes emotional when she realized someone close to her used to live in the home she and her husband, Ben, were in the process of renovating.
During the episode, the HGTV star discovers that her grandmother and her grandmother’s sister, Bert, used to live in the home. “I hadn’t heard this in my whole life,” she says. “Of course, my grandmother isn’t able to talk anymore. She’s lost her speech.” Erin’s cousin and her great aunt Bert visit the home to tell her more about their connection to the home. Erin learns that the Stassi family, which had a restaurant in Laurel, owned the home. “It was all these single ladies who were all living here and courting, dating their husbands that would marry someday,” Erin says. “My grandparents met when she lived here. My story began here.”

Those are my grandparents on the left with her three sisters. Just this week I learned that their story and one of my family’s most special traditions began in a house we’ve been working on for months that will be the end of season 4. I can’t wait for you to hear the story in a few weeks. 😭
