Victorian House Tour

Victorian House Tour

This house was built between 1870 and 1901, so it’s a great example of late victorian architecture. Believe it or not, but it’s a dental practice now. And what a fancy dental practice that is! But see for yourselves! The house was refurbished but all the goodies (features) are still there! Dental practice owners are […]

Inch House Tour

Two years ago in the fall, we toured Inch House – historic mansion located in our area. First of all – why is it called Inch House? The name ‘inch’ means ‘island’ in gaelic, meaning that back in a day this house was probably located on a dry area within boggy grounds . House had many owners […]
