    This makes my heart go pitter-pat. Do we think the staircase was fancier once upon a time?

      It does seem a little simple for the style of the house. They took time and money to put on some nice brackets and trim on the outside (even on the small side porch) and then went simple craftsman on the railing? (not even a style in the states then) I think you’re right, Bethany.

      I agree. My guess is that the craftsman looking staircase was done later. Especially in 1870s
      I also wonder what happened to the real shutters. They exist in one phot and are gone in another.
      I would love a to paint this house in a nice period color scheme.

        Good catch, MJG. I hope that they’re stashed in the garage, since the house looks naked without them!

        I agree the house needs its shutters returned. Swing and a miss on the style description in the listing copy. Maybe the realtor sees OHD and corrects, as this is a great example of Italianate design aside from the later staircase.

    Why does it feel like this house is missing a porch? It probably isn’t, because of the ornate trim over the door; but the outside just looks like it needs something else.

    The home of carpenter David E. Pendleton (143-1915), who married Minerva Alcott and moved to New Berlin in the late 1860’s and probably built the house then. They raised their children here on a small farm with just a few cows and gardens for produce.
    The stair was altered in an awkward way (1920’s maybe) – hard to tell why from these photos but not for style.

    Little voice saying “save me..help me’.. Good bones? Hope for this one.

    It looks like something was added on the second floor by the landing that interfered with the direction of the old stairs. The bottom of the stairs go in two directions witch is kinda funky. Maybe they enlarged a room up there or added a closet.
