    I am very curious about the photo #4 on the Hampton, IA house the individual art/picture panels at the top of the walls above picture rail– what are those? wall paper or mural? It looks like that room would have been the parlor and I know from reading that the red color would have been only used by people with some sort of status. Also would love to work on the house from North Carolina WOW.
    oh and the Red Springs home looks like the perfect location for a ghost movie.
