About the house

The George R. Harsh home was built in the Tudor style featuring leaded glass windows, extraordinary original woodwork, a beautifully paneled dining room with lovely plastered ceiling featuring a horse, a hog and a griffin. The grand staircase leads one gently to the second floor featuring five bedrooms. To ascend quickly one would use the servant’s staircase which can also lead one to the third floor featuring two bedrooms, a bath and what has been described as an unfinished ball room.
