New furnace with efficient hot water heater.Golden oak floors preserved as a step back into history! 5 gardens on this 1.78 acre mini estate graced with 1400 ft. semi-circular drive. Historical records show Captain Lewis Hormell took almost 9 years to build. 2 fireplaces, 1 in dining area where early settlers cooked their meals.The original well and water pump of where the soldiers horses would water, is still on the property today. "It has been reported by word of mouth of the original townspeople, that they remember the caisson wagons coming through the brick gates and unloading the caissons for the soldiers, encamped on the five acre front lawn.We know that covered wagons with horses don't back up easily, therefore the semi-circular drive, still exactly the same today.
