Did you catch the film “Suffragette” this last year? It was all about the early Suffragette Movement, the fearless women who stood for women's rights, the fore-women of the women's right to vote movement. My, what they endured! Clandestine meetings and decisions were made at Suffragette “safe houses,” throughout the nation, homes with secret meeting rooms, kept hidden from the community and those who were not well intentioned. Guess what?! In March, we have a very special listing coming up. At our first open house, we will have a fabulous grand community event for this historic home in Highland Park, where a couple of big-wig politicos are rumored to be present! Also in attendance will be finger snappin music, tasty food, period dressed docents to guide and share this landmark home with you!
Tina and Charles Miller, our local Historic Preservationist heroes, introduced us to the home and it’s amazing owner. If it were not for Tina’s efforts several years ago, this house might not be here...more on that on another post. It has been an amazing process watching the unveiling of the patinated wallpaper, the lathe and plaster behind it. The wide planked floors underneath huge rugs.
We are beyond honored at the opportunity to represent our seller, and create a fun, local event for our community! More details to coming! Here are some teaser pix!
In the light fixture...those light bulbs are the original light bulbs from when the house was built!THEY STILL WORK!
