If you like old homes..

If you like old homes, you will appreciate this one in the same we we do.  I believe the date of construction was 1851, and the wood work is by Thomas Day. He home owners were kind enough to invite me into this home and allow me to take photos. When the restoration of the beautiful wood work is finished, we will begin the lighting process.

Only a couple of windows are needing replacement, and the doors have been stripped of more than a century of paint. They will remain unpainted.

The worn treads will stay worn.

As history repeats itself, so does the ownership of this home. The original home owners lost the house shortly after the Civil War, but the direct descendants have recently purchased the home and are lovingly restoring it. We are proud to add the warmth of light.
