Driving by I couldn’t help but notice this beautiful old house! I bet it’s haunted! 😉
Linking with Tom’s Tuesday’s Treasures
Built in 3 stages beginning in 1840…let’s get a closer look shall we?
A mural?! Let’s take an even closer look!
I love murals that reflect the history of a place…digging around I found THIS written by a family historian..it’s an interesting read if you like that sort of thing, which I do!
So in yesterday’s post I showed the painted rug from this awesome old house! Come along and I’ll show you a little more!
Over here we are sitting on a little bench enjoying the view!
This is the way into the kitchen…now we kind of unknowingly went trespassing at this point…the man checking us in told us to feel free to wander around and take pictures…so…
I of course wanted to see the inside and we were also in search of the bathroom…we followed some people into the kitchen then looked around a tiny bit and used the bathroom then went back outside…
While we were all getting ready to eat the owner of the house blessed our meal and made a few announcements like the location of the porta potties haha…guess we weren’t supposed to use the indoor facilities…how embarrassing!! So to the owner if you are reading this, we are sorry!! We didn’t touch anything!!
Ok I completely forgot to tell you the history of this old beaut! Santillane was built back in 1797 and has ties to Lewis and Clark:
Last Saturday our church held a cookout and music at the historic Santillane house…I was so excited to get the chance to see this beautiful old home up close!
Is this a rug? Nope! It’s painted on the floor to look like a rug! How neat is that??!!
So pretty!! Now I want to paint all my floors haha…
Tomorrow I’ll show you around this grand old place!
