“take a tour rich with historic detail”
Our grand tour of the Harper family's 1815 home is so rich with detail, you'll swear you hear the swish of a skirt behind you or the metallic scrape of a cook pot in the kitchen. Modest in appearance on the exterior, there are 17 rooms inside, including the original cellar kitchen with cooking fireplace, bake oven, and a splendid banquet room with coved ceiling and early nineteenth century scenic French wallpaper. On the grounds, original shrubs and trees shade flower and herb gardens. Virtually all the furniture pieces in the home belonged to the Harpers. The house looks much like it was in the 1830’s when Robert, his wife Polly, and their four daughters lived at Shandy Hall. Robert Harper built a four room home in 1815, then over the next twenty years transformed the house into what was considered a mansion. The two generations that succeeded Robert Harper took great care to preserve the furnishings, tools, and traditions that exist today at Shandy Hall.
