Rives Mansion revisited


IMG_2117_1It had been a while since we visited the Rives mansion. So, Saturday we stopped by to see if we could wander around again. We were in luck, the door was open and Oscar was there.  

IMG_2115Climbing to the second story, I found myself wondering how many people over the last hundred years had climbed that same wide staircase. There is such a sense of history here.

I finally had a chance to see the "ballroom." It is a large room lit by tons of natural light. In fact, what I noticed most on this visit was the enormous amount of natural light in the house.

As we visited, Oscar shared some of his thoughts about the future of the mansion.

Oscar and Carmen have made progress on the place. They have continued to paint, adding color to some of the walls. See previous post of this same landing from January. Of course, more posts to follow.
