I know I posted photos before, lets try to show you around the house.
Note we live here I did not try to clean the place up and perhaps I should have, I know my wife thinks so
The Front looking in from Jones st
View from the Park below us to the South.
We have been told the house sets on the highest point (above Sea Level) in Racine.
Many taller buildings in Racine.
Still this looks very impressive
Lets go inside
Stairway going up to 2nd Floor
Built in 1905, the craftsman ship here is great.
Do not even want to think about how much this would cost to do today.
The Ship Theme Room
This (The Home) was built for the owners Father who was a ship Capt on the Great Lakes to 1900/1905.
This home was for him but the good Capt Story is far from over with his moving to this house.
Building of Theme rooms came from the Upper Classes to show/Tell about of the history of the family living there.
The Bed is attached to the wall the Springs etc date to 1905
2nd room of the Theme Room(s) again from 1905 the window frames Windows hinges ect.
Over time and the kids leaving they have become storage spaces.
Mind you these rooms are haunted I do not go in them at night any more.
Let’s go Downstairs
Living Room Looking West into Dinning Room 9′ Ceilings
Windows on left look South and go from floor to ceiling 3 sets of two see below
Windows looking to the South into the Park below, the River is the Root River note the windows have interesting closing gears I have to take photos of them
Dinning Room note the back door to the back yard. Metal is the security door
As you can see my wife likes Dragons.
The Cabinet on the right was built with the house again in 1905.

the windows are just regular windows
Lets Go Outside
What is left from the Old Green House an past owner took down the glass and covered the space with whatever.
Truck is what is used for mine and the other area Gardens I help with also used at my Kin’s farm
To the left is the door leading into the Basement.
From the Yard view to the South. The Drop off is 80′ down
Part of the Wood Line we own into the park
You can see the Drop better and the Woods
This is cool the Back Porch or the back fighting platform as I call it
You can see the back door and get a idea of the coolness
The View to the south

Was built as a stable in 1905
The Roof needs work
We use it as storage
