We're going in! This is what we look at as we step through the front door. I think that I could make this a bowling alley or dance hall. I'm kidding of course. This is one of those rooms that you can see the floors all polished slick and the kids running and sliding all the way down on their knees. I am not well educated on Victorian houses so if any of you know why they would make such a long hall I am currious to know.
There is a wonderful Spindled arch above.
Then we have carpet. Dirty, ugly, carpet which I am sure was added to help insulate the floors.
And looking off to the right you will see either a bedroom or a Ladies Parlor. I feel it was used as a bedroom but perhaps intended for the other. This is my favorite mantle in the house. I will take a close up picture of it once it is painted. There are five such mantels in the house. As a former shop keeper I loved finding these at flea markets. They were expensive to say the least but something that everyone wanted me to find for them.
So there you have the first peek inside. As you can see it will be a long hall/haul ahead of us but one day.....She will be a Swan.
