Ewart-Duggan House Interior: Part 1

After photographing the exterior of the Ewart-Duggan House in the spring last year, I took the opportunity to  check out the interior during an open house before Christmas. The home has been very well kept by the Esplanade, and features many of the original details, including the fireplace, various woodwork, and fixtures.  

I was particularly impressed with the level of detail and embellishment on the grates, doorknobs, and hinges.  These are places you hardly even see, and the fact that they must have been hand crafted just makes the work seem even more impressive.  It supports the fact that the most valuable antiques today are often the ones that were valuable in their day too.  You can tell that they didn't cut corners building this place.  It really is a beautiful, and surprisingly spacious, old home.

Thank you for the photos. I've always wondered what it looked like inside, but I can't believe there's no wallpaper in that house. Didn't all houses of that era have wallpaper?
