The home was built in 1875 (the first part, at least) and was occupied by the family for about 110 years. I enjoyed my visit a great deal. I have read that the house is haunted, but I didn’t really fell it was. It wasn’t creepy at all…except for this one wax doll with spooky eyes. Unfortunately, my camera’s battery had exhausted before my tour. LOL! This means I will have to return.
