This is the wall in the dining room. The fireplace is surrounded in gorgeous carved wood. The house is really wonderful. Wondering about the rest of the title?? Well, during the Civil War, the house was taken over by a troop of soldiers and used as a temporary headquarters. And as for the murderer,,, sometime and I am uncertain of the time, maybe 1960s. There was a man who owned the house and ground. It was found that he would employ migrant workers to work on the farm and then he killed them. How do like that for a history? If walls could talk, huh?
This is the front door. The stain glass is awesome. It was a very snowy, dreery day so the photo doesn't do it justice.
When you enter the front door you are greeted by this gorgeous curving staircase.
Her house has a lot of interesting history. It was built prior to the Civil War by a well known family in Boone County. There were once slave quarters on the property. Beams from the slave cabins were salvaged and now are on the ceiling in the kitchen.
I am one of 5 friends who get together regularly to sew, shop hop and have fun. Sometimes we do little retreats and sometimes we meet at each other's homes for a day of sewing, food and talk. This past Sunday 3 of us made it through the nasty weather for just such a day at Ann's house.
It was a great day. Good company and lots of sewing.
