RESEARCHING THE HISTORY of Trail End and its construction has been a fascinating, ongoing project. By sorting through hundreds of documents – blueprints, drawings, correspondence, diaries, newspaper accounts and photographs – we have learned more than just what a room looked like when it was built and how much it cost. In some instances, we’ve learned why a given room was designed and built the way it was, what changes were made over the years, and what family members were thinking at the time they made their decisions.
“Home Is Where The History Is” focuses solely on Trail End – its construction, its furnishings and its occupants – as well as what went into making it the historic treasure it is today.
