Thanks, all, for the nice comments! And yes, my house is very old… built in 1780 by Dr. Jeremiah Greene, a first cousin to the famous American Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene. The history of the house makes it very special to us, and we are taking great care in maintaining its character. We like to think that perhaps General Greene himself, who was born locally and lived quite near here into adulthood, visited his cousin often and maybe even had a conversation or two about the Revolution itself! Ah… do we believe in ghosts!?
