When buying an old house, you also purchase a slice of history.
That includes connections to a past era, people who once lived there, unique features and special events as well as the care — or lack of it — for the structure itself.
Love for history of both lore and maintenance binds caring owners of old homes to a dedication to preservation and enjoyment today. They like living in part of a bygone time. It excites and interests them, the owners say, by having one foot in the past and another in the 21st Century.
