    What a pretty and gracious house. Love the high ceilings, trimwork, and the chandeliers.(especially that first one shown in the 7th pic! sigh.)

    This home is near where I live and sure would be fun to go see it!
    We are still looking for a Dream Home and this is near the area that is desirable.
    I love the chandeliers!

    Elegant home. I love the stark simplicity of the outside. I have a door just like the one they show that I assume was for the underground RR. I wonder what mine was for. It’s stuffed with insulation right now.

      Actually, that lovely front door was created to match the lovely interior, with its wonderful woodwork and fine ornamental plaster ceilings. It was typical of front doors for expensive homes of the ‘Greek Revival’ era. There were a number of popular architectural plan books available before the Civil War that show similar designs. Because outside doors take a beating from the weather, exceptionally fine doors like this one are a rare survival.
      It would never have been created as a signal for the Underground Railroad because you would have to have trespassed to see its details. No African Americans on the run would have risked a daylight visit to confirm details on any front door.
      Most sources on the history of the Underground Railroad credit ‘conductors’ with escorting escaped slaves from one ‘station’ to the next, but each knowing only a small part of the route to the next stop.
      This is simply a lovely home, with a wonderful history.
