This is her in period costume in her kitchen. Notice the screen door on the left, that goes into her pantry.
This is the hall. Notice the board and batten walls. She peeled off the old wall paper that was in tatters and there was cheesecloth umderneath. Of course strings of it are still clinging like cobwebs in places-she said it was driving her crazy. Every time she walks down the hall she is picking at it. I think the wood is beautiful and I would probably leave it as is-minus the strings of course! Love this staircase,very unusual. As you can see they are still working on this home and will be for some time. They bought this house at auction and worked on it for almost three years just to get it to where it is now. It will take time, but they will have a wonderful home when they are through.The house is called the Bennett House, or the Doll House. I think the last owner collected dolls. The home was built in1901.
