Video of My Old Historic House.

Last spring I was lucky to be featured in a video of my house. It comes from PBS Illinois. They are located in Quincy, Illinois, about 65 miles from my town of Clarksville,Mo. They do a weekly session called, "Illinois Stories." One thing they like to feature are house museums. Where I do not live in Illinois, they broke the rules a little an came and did a story of my house. It is a 30 minute video and now they have given me permission to share it with others. So type this in your search bar and it should pop up. Enjoy. Come for a real tour anytime. I will leave the lights on and Sissy will always meet you with a jump and a kiss. Richard

Long time lurker here. The video tour really helped put your house into perspective. The restoration looks fantastic and I admire your hard work and determination. Your knowledge of history and antiques is impressive. Oh, and that's one cute little pup you have! - Kat

Oh Richard! That was wonderful! Thanks for telling us about that. I added it to my favorites and trust me I will be watching it all the time. I always look at the Victorian Homes magazine with your house in it so now I have this to look at also. Yay!
Have a great rest of your weekend. Gina
