I wonder who lived in this fixer upper Queen Anne when it was built around 1900. It must have been someone who was prominent in the small community of less than 900 residents. Whoever designed the home took care to incorporate elements that would last for 120 years. A turret,  wrap-around porch, leaded glass windows, hardwood floors, tin ceilings, beautiful fireplace mantels and built-ins still grace this beauty, but to restore it back to the life it had in 1900, it evidently needs the love of an old house enthusiast.


“Improvement” were apparently made in the 1960s, the the wallpaper tells that story. In fact, the bedroom with all the blankets piled on the bed is the same floral wallpaper my mother-in-law had in her bedroom since 1962.
