This area was added sometime after the house was built around 1850. We have pictures from prior to the end of the 19th century showing a smaller porch and a flat front to the house. When we had the wood floor redone, this are had to be replaced. We were able to save about 2/3rd of the original floor. The amish did an amazing job considering the planks were of many different widths. The area of the hearth was the exact size of new boards when we redid the fireplace, so we think a stove sat there at one time. This is another set of gentleman/lady's parlor chairs which I love. I also collect the needlepoint sayings above the window along with the gold jewerly caskets on the table.
its almost here!
