|Corner of Vine Street and Park Avenue|
The Batkes and Links both lived on Vine Street in St. Joseph, Michigan. Although they each lived at other addresses in St. Joseph, when they finally settled in, Henry Batke and his family moved into 614 Vine Street and Jacob Link and his family lived at 626 Vine Street. Vine Street is now part of the historic area of St. Joseph.
Today, even though both original homes have been replaced with new larger homes, many older homes still remain giving Vine Street, just three blocks from Lake Michigan, the feel of the time when the Batkes and Links lived there.
|The Batke home is marked with a green X and the Link home with a red X.|
