We discovered this magical village when we were pregnant with our daughter and have enjoyed the serenity and magic of this historic town whose name means 'place of rest'. We can't imagine living elsewhere. The symbol of our town is a seahorse and it has become the spirit of our family. The male seahorse raises the child and that resembles our family. My husband was Mr. Mom as I pursued the salary sustaining career so that one of us could raise our daughter. Yeah, Seahorse!!
This property was in disrepair when we moved to town in 1987 and we'd walk by and feel such pain that such a town landmark was in such a state. As luck would have it, we purchased her in 1995 and began our labor of love to restore her to her grand stature when she was the queen of the town in 1809. We feel one with this historic home only owned by two families in her 200 + years. We have restored her yet kept her true to her character. So when you visit, you will experience modern conveniences within the context of her 1800 architecture.
