This Old House...

Thought I would show you just a few of our treasures from our home..When we got this house, windows were broken, ceilings were falling down and "no" heat..Just two wood stoves and a kerosene stove in the kitchen,which was broken. For some reason that didn't matter to us, we thought the home was beautiful..It was built 1832 for a Captain Kaler. I will tell you, the move into this home was Dec 2.,four children(had the last child here), never in our life burned wood..was one of the coldest February's in Maine that year..need I say more?
Now on to a little history found here..When my husband was digging the garden, he found the first coin, 1797 penny, looks pretty good..the second penny was dug up by the dog and not a good sample..We found bottles, this is just a few, under the barn and few in the cellar..The clay pipe was found when we dug under the porch..
Thought it might be interesting to share a little history of our home.
It is really too big for us now and time to move on, but the love this house has, you can feel it in the rooms..

Till next time, keep looking up..
