A History of 1816

Recently, we had the wonderful opportunity to peek into history with a previous owner of 1816. Gayle Guthrie, who owned our home between 1976 + 1998, found us though the blog. She was nice enough to join us for dinner in January.


After dinner, we sat in the living room to go through the pictures Gayle had brought. She painted beautiful memories, with each turn of the album’s pages. Gayle remembered the multiple letters she had received requesting seed packets from the nursery run out of the cottage in the 1940s. The Brelsfords, who owned the home at the time, used the cottage to pot ferns.

We were lucky to connect with Gayle and for her to share her memories. For more pictures from Gayle’s album, click here.
