  • A little candy and a shiny silver coin

    When trick-or-treaters knocked on Laura Broome’s door at 40 Calhoun St. on Halloween, they were given candy… and a special surprise.

    Broome wanted to continue a tradition that started years ago at the house she now lives in.

    Broome grew up on Holly Street in Great Falls but moved away for 33 years. She lived in Atlanta, Ga. for the last 20 years but in July, Broome moved into the house known as “the Fort house” on Calhoun Street.

    Moving into the house was a dream come true for Broome.
