The house contains three sets of beautiful pocket doors and the original combination gas/electric light fixtures.

From 1965 - 1973 the home was used as the Red Door restaurant, so named for the beautiful Bohemian red glass panes in the main entrance door and transom. In 1973 it was converted back to a home.

In 2004 Gene and Kriss Royer purchased the home. The Royer's’ dedication to the House shines through in all corners of the house. From its beautiful and individualized period room decorations to the beautiful front and back yards.

They take pride in taking excellent care of their guests and making them feel at home.
