    So cool, but the mannequin and red bathtub are big nopes

    For some reason I keep hearing a player piano as I look at these pictures. Wouldn’t it be great if this little town could be revived as some sort of quaint antiques village and this property could be the springboard for some kind of antiques journey every year.

      Your first sentence about the player piano… Reminds me a bit of an old western saloon such as Gunsmoke’s The Longbranch. The mannequin looks like she’s had a few too many…

        I have always had a weakness for cowboys/outlaws.. I just want to go and lay on that 1800s bar and try to absorb some of the history it has seen and who all has bellied up to it. Oh if only it could talk.

    Calgary,

    What an awesome house! Those mannequins are freaking me out but they sure add a layer of intrigue to it. LOVE that bar with the old cash register!

    Not sure it would fit, but that bar would be awesome in my basement (wannabe man cave). Some nice pieces of furniture as well, but I digress. This has possibilities, probably for an antique shop, etc.

    I would like the stove, please!! This place is wonderful. The things I could do here! I have no idea what this part of the country is like, but I can dream!

      What a fascinating property. Relatively close to Seattle, which is becoming so expensive I don’t know how anyone can afford to live there. FYI, if you buy this place and Mt. Rainer blows, you are toast!

    That has to be the shortest tub I’ve ever seen! Cool town though!

    So weird, I’m pretty sure I visited this place as a child in the 1980s. I grew up in another old mining town not too far away from Wilkeson.

    That awesome bar and the absolutely cool little shorty bath tub are worth the price alone! (well, damn near)

    What a wonderfully quirky place, and what fun to restore it!

      There was a bath tub like that in The Outlaw Josey Wales. The bad guys thought they had the drop on ol’ Clint but he had two pistols under the bathwater, naturally, and blasted ’em good!

    Before it was a bed and breakfast it had another life! Article has a few more interior photos and history.

    That’s funny because I was thinking the bar visitor was more of a Belle Watlin
