|This is the
original exterior porch, enclosed to become the Hallway with openings to all
rooms and an exit to the courtyard. The beaded board ceiling is original,
hand-stripped and painted. All exterior ceilings have been faithfully
replicated in the same design. The windows in the North Hall were installed
from the now existing north end of the dining room. Where the windows were
is an archway and a balcony looking down into the great room from the dining
room. The double window in the middle is an original sliding window restored
to perfection by hand and is now in the Northwest Wing.
There is a mural painted on the west wall. This
oil mural on canvas was done from the original photograph of the home at the
turn of the century. The original photograph that the artist, Tehle Magufee,
worked from is hung on the opposite wall from the large mural. This mural is
19’ long and 7’ tall.
Going north down the hall, the first room is
the laundry room. This room has been restored with original beaded board
walls and ceiling. The large restored cabinet was the original kitchen
cabinet. There is a back door exit to the outside walkway from the laundry
The second room down the hall is a guest room
which is called the Belle B'Anne Blue Room.
