They call it the Elevator house. I think it is a Red roof Gottschalk. Dated 1900 with Germany as the country of manufacture this three storey house with attic has a beautiful exterior complete with fence, balconies and bay windows.
The centre hall features an elevator which works on a pulley system. Notice that there is no staircase.
|The third floor bedroom has Golden Oak Schneegas furniture from Germany. It was made before the first World War. I think the rocking chair is American, possibly Cass Co.|
|You can see the pulley in the back of the third floor hall.|
|I love the bathroom wallpaper and tiling. The bathroom fixtures are very modern for the age of the house.|
|There is more Schneegas golden oak furniture in the second floor bedroom, plus a wire wash stand.|
|The second floor landing shows the elevator rope|
|The elegant drawing room is on the second floor. I believe the upholstered furniture is German, and the piano is more Golden Oak Schneegas. I really like the wallpaper and border in this room.|
|The kitchen also has some great paper tiling. I believe the high chair is Kilgore. Love the stove!|
|The lower hall has a wonderful light fixture as well as the elevator. The gown on the lady is just beautiful, and I love her hat. The child's outfit is also gorgeous.|
|The golden oak Schneegas dining room suite looks great in the dining room. Again, I love the wallpaper and border. The light fixture is pretty special too.|
|Access to the attic is through this small opening at the top of the house.|
|Another view of the whole house.|
|Bye for now. I hope you enjoyed the tour.|
