So many houses around here have such beautiful architectural details, built during the 19th century when there were many craftsman still carving wood and stone.
Katie had heard that there was going to be an open house at this historic building, the Grosvner House, so we went to see the inside and found many more examples of 19th century craftsmanship and heard some fascinating stories about its history.
I've visited lots of historic buildings but I have never seen a house with some of the special details that this one had, including servants quarters on the top floor of the house with a staircase down to the main kitchen and to the basement summer kitchen.
The hardware in the house was all handmade with unique details.
Two large china closets held the dinnerware in the dining room.
