Historic Home

Last month while I was in PA we took a side trip up to Amish Country and passed through the town of Abbottstown. This beautiful home caught my eye.



The house is 126 years old and has 24 rooms. It still has the original hand painted stained glass windows in the front doors and South American hardwood floors.
It was originally built in 1884 by William Hafer who was a local livestock farmer. The home cost$1 million dollars and was home to four generations before being sold to another family.
All I could do was drool and snap the photo.
