No time like Christmas to appreciate age-old tradition in a home that has had so many families before us. This is probably our favorite room because of the colors and the fireplace. It is truly a cozy experience on a cold day to have the fire going while we have dinner with family and friends.
As you face the fireplace in the top picture, the kitchen is to the right and the sunroom/laundry room/bathroom is to the left. In the bottom picture, the doorway to the foyer. Note the thickness of the doorway. The original 1790's home ended there - the thickness you see is due to the exterior stone wall that has been plastered over to enlarge the home with the 1850's addition on the other side of the wall.
