Walt Disney: My family and I moved here after my uncle got a farming job in this town, in 1906. I was five years old. While growing up here, I discovered an intense love for art and drawing, encouraged by our next-door neighbor, a retired doctor. I also loved the trains that were always running through the town, and used to lay with my eyes closed, ears to the ground, trying to hear the train coming. The town setting for Lady and the Tramp was based on this one. When I was ten, in 1911, my family moved away.
