OLD SALTBOX IN SNOW


Following the "In the Snow" theme, this is an old saltbox house built in 1770 and was previously either a law office, a doctor's office or both; the facts are not quite clear. But it was one of those. As noted in my previous posting, small houses like this usually don't last as long as the colonials. But, since this was the office of a wealthy person, the house was made with better materials. The floors are chestnut both up and down. That is another thing, sometimes the upstairs floors are pine and the downstairs are hardwood because they would get more use.
