Historic House Tour

Oct. 5, 2014

The house tour was wonderful!
A few of the homes on tour were in my neck of the woods.
I could only take pictures of the outside of the homes and property,
no indoor photography was allowed.
 A few of the homes I was unable to photograph.
I will share in two posts the photos I was able to take.

Hope you enjoy the tour!!

This log home was built c.1750 the stone addition c.1780 
The barn was built c.1800
The home feature three large walk-in fireplaces,
three indoor bake ovens and remnants of an outside bake oven.

The original section of this farmhouse dates c.1798.
Additions added c.1840, and in 2008 a period appropriate family room was added.
Their most recent project was to finish the interior attached Summer Kitchen with walk-in fireplace.
You will see the Summer Kitchen off to the left in the second photo.

This farmhouse sits on 18 acres, built 1750 with two rooms down and 2 rooms upstairs.
Additions were built in 1789, 1860 and 1975.
I also took pictures of their sweet horse and sheep.

Wisner-Rapp House built in the early to mid 1800's
is now home of the Charlestown Historical Society.
Jacob Wisner 1761-1846  was a Revolutionary War Veteran.
The drum down below was found under the rafters.
They think it was used by Jacob during the Revolutionary War.
