From the upstairs hallway, you enter what appears to be a closet. Instead it opens up into a cedar storage attic with spacious storage cupboards and huge, deep drawers. Beyond the attic is a private room with its own separate stairway that can be used as the 5th bedroom, office, or playroom. More surprises can be found on the main floor too, including a remarkable number of closets (5) on the main floor. Plus there’s a mystery 3rd floor with only a window access from the roof.

Enjoy the relaxed, small town atmosphere from the cozy screen porch under the grand shade trees. Enjoy the splendor of 4 rooms of the Governor's exquisite antique furniture -- sleep in the Governor's bed, eat at his dining room table with his luxurious antique satin draperies enhancing the windows, or relax in the cozy parlor.
