That I live in is 143 years old this year and 7 generations of my family have live here since My family built it. Nothing remains of the old log house that they had before. Many aspects like windows,doors,trim and some of the siding are original.On the interior all the trim. banisters, mantels, flooring and some of the original plaster remain.I demolished the rear wing to build a more modern/livable area and also added a mud room and 2 car garage. I am rather proud of the old place mostly because of the family history. I also feel fortunate that I have many old family furnishings and things. How many others have similar homes that have been in your family for a long time.
