I know I said before that the original house was built in 1740 but I read somewhere that it was 1769. The addition was put on in 1810 according to the same literature. And yes, George Washington visited the property because of the vantage point that afforded him the observation of British troops that were landing in the Elk River in August 1777. This is one of the highest spots around.And before I go any further, I just want to say how amazing you all are. I want to thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment and for just being supportive with everything that's going on in my life right now. So, thanks. Things are a little bit overgrown at the moment, but it shouldn't take too much work to clean it up somewhat. Above is the breakfast nook. Try to picture it without all the vines. It's really quite lovely inside and has a heated floor which is really nice on these cold mornings. Here's a view looking straight up from the front door. We don't usually use this door, as we go in through the garage, up the few steps into the mudroom and then up the steps to the breakfast nook.
