Treasure Chest Thursday - January 28, 2010

The following are photos of the interior of the old William Bean home, as posted yesterday.

The Front Room

The stariway leading to the 2nd floor.

One of the bedrooms.

The doorway leading to the stairs.

A window, where once there was a chimney, looks out on the beautiful Potts Valley, toward Waiteville.

One of the upstairs bedrooms.

Although the exterior has changed a bit, there has been siding placed over the logs and both stone chimney’s have been removed, the interior remains much the same as it was when William and his wife, Rachel, lived there with their family in the 1840’s-1860’s. Only electricity and a modern bath added. The rear extension behind the house is a complete modern addition.

Beautiul view out of the picture window. I'll bet that view really hasn't changed that much over the years. I love how you can see each log in the wall. What a true treaure.

It is marvelous workmanship that the house is still being used with little changes.
Thanks for sharing.
