Couple's historic Philly home came with an unusual caveat: Annual battle reenactments | We the People

For Halloween, they turned the 2.45-acre property on the 6400 block of Germantown Avenue into the Land of Oz by bathing the mansion in emerald lights, creating a yellow brick road, and turning 200 red umbrellas into a field of poppies.

    Couple's historic Philly home came with an unusual caveat: Annual battle reenactments | We the People
    Meet: Alex Aberle and Violette Levy, young preservationists who've made Upsala mansion - formerly a historic house museum - their home.​ War zone: Once a year, the couple are required to allow their front yard to be turned into a battlefield for a Revolutionary War reenactment.

Hoarding is a serious problem amongst older adults. For National Pat Rack Day, learn how to help:

    5 Methods to Help Senior Hoarding
    It may seem like the elderly individuals within your life retain so many material items. With age comes great clutter. Often, belongings increase over the years; therefore, the more years a person has within their life, the more possessions they may own, generally speaking. There are various reasons why senior citizens are prone to hoarding.
