Thanks for posting that, Cricket! Sounds like a good idea to designate as a historical monument. Add me to the list of prospective tourists. Just curious—how’d you find the article?

Mostly by accident. I was looking at some woodworking and tiny house workshops that I am interested in and that showed up in some search results.

That looks older that Roy Underhill’s place!

I like visiting these old places. I loved visiting Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown a number of years ago.
