Victorian home built in 1893
This lovely old Victorian home was built in 1893. Upon entering the home, one immediately steps back in time. The house boasts a wrap around porch with original fretwork in gingerbread style. The gable fretwork is new as is the gazebo off the back. As you exit the house through the kitchen, the beauty of this wonderful old home extends into the backyard. At the back of the backyard is a barn with two box stalls. The present owners saw the potential of the house and have restored to its original splendor. Many of the original features still remain.

Al moved into house with his father and 6 sisters in 1946. He and his wife grace (Hall) moved into house in 1970. Lived there with there 6 children Albert, Danny, Michael, Colleen, Kathleen and Dennis until 2001 when they retired in Maine. Many, many memories were made there.

Was my Grandmother's house. Dorothy Baker. Many a holiday dinner. As a kid, remember being told about the barn, in a hushed whisper..."don't go upstairs". Bathtub with legs, and having to boil water on the stove and they carried it upstairs to put in the tub.

Gazebo was never there as long as I remember. Wrap around porch was turned into small bedroom for foster child. HUGE pocket doors both sides of "parlor". Parque floors. Alcove for piano in l/r. Dad and Uncles used to goe every year and put up porch screens, and take 'em down in fall. Uncle lost part of finger on radio tower.
