Room Description

This historic home dates back to the 1860’s. It started life as a wagon repair shop. The original lettering advertising the business are still visible on the front of the house stating “Wagons and Buggies Made and Repaired”.

The wood floors on the main level are original to the building- dating back to the 1860’s. You can still see the grooves made by wagons as they were rolled in and out of the building.
