This is now the second time this has happened to us...
So the doorbell rang the other day when we were not expecting any guests. It turned out to be the former owner of our house from the early 1960s to the early 1970s. She no longer lives in New England but had heard about the B&B from friends in the area and wanted to come by and see what we had done.
We walked around the house together sharing stories and learning a lot. We learned that there had been a second staircase to the second floor from living room and that there had been five bedrooms on the second floor. Wow...FIVE bedrooms, we have just three. We also found out that the cool sliding windows in our sunroom date back prior to 1964 (we know Andersen Windows started making them in the 1930s).
At the end of her visit she expressed that she was very pleased with the changes we had made, we shared hugs, and planned to keep in touch. She is going to look for some old photos we can add to our collection and we will definitely share some here if they show up.
