Built in the 1930s, this historic farmhouse was owned by the late Leta Mac Stripling, who recently passed away at the age of 100. Her descendants are presently modernizing the house while keeping her antiques a focal point. Among my favorite items are the original Currier & Ives lithographs in the parlor, as well as lithographs by Nathaniel Currier before he went into partnership with James Merritt Ives.
Family photographs look out over antique shaving mugs in the hallway.
This upstairs bedroom is very typical of a country house of 80 years ago.
Several historic barns remain on the property.
I’d like to thank Janisse Ray for the invitation, and William and Jane Stanley for being wonderful hosts.
