The Stranded House: This aerial view of the new dual-lane US-23 in Northfield township shows the quandry in which the Frank R. Ross family has been placed by the building of the new road. The Ross farm home is seen in the lower center. Seventeen of the 18 acres of land owned by Ross are located in the open stretch of land directly across the dual-lane highway. He is required to drive 2 1/2 miles around the new road to reach his 17 acres, although the land is only 250 feet from his home.
