    I’m glad you posted this one, Kelly. I fell in love with it when Barbara V posted it a couple weeks ago. That tall house amoung the tall trees just set my soul singing. And I love the interior, though how I wish for pictures of the attic and basement!

    My husband took a couple days off, and he’s helping me get the LAST wall up in the kitchen! I’m just beside myself with wanting to get it done, but it’s hot and humid today, so we’re taking lots of breaks. Can you feel my impatience? *grin*

  2. Oh, for photos of it back in the day!
    Those fireplaces are wonderful, I’d sure want them functional.

    This house is wonderful! Seriously! If there is a house to buy it would be this one, it has been striped down to the stud, which leaves it for updating wiring, and proper insultation. With some hardwork, this house can be beautiful again. Where do I sign up to purchase this place?

    The drone shot shows LeFevre Falls on the Rondout, also the name of the small community up the hill behind the house. Famous in the 19th Century for its Rosendale hydraulic cement that was used on the Erie Canal, there were many quarries and cement works in the area.
    This house is shown on an old map as a tenant house of Timothy F. Tillson (1798-1879), a farmer and large landowner after whose family the hamlet of Tillson across the creek is named. The longtime Rosendale historian (and family friend) Ann LeFevre Gilchrist would have known for sure – she knew about every house in town.

    Can anyone tell me what the tiny door is in the last interior picture?
