    Just sharing a few photo's of the interior of the Gardner-Pingree house in Salem, Mass. Beautiful Federal period home built in 1804 by John Gardner and his wife Sarah. Mr. Gardner and his wife sold the home in 1811 to Nathaniel West and then again a few years later Nathaniel West sold the home to Captain Joseph White and in 1830 the home became the site of his murder. The trial for the murder was an inspiration for parts of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart and Nathaniel Hawthorne's House of the Seven Gables (also a gorgeous home to tour while in Salem). The home is now owned by the Peabody Essex Museum, too many pictures to show but its filled with 18th and early 19th century furnishings. So many stunning homes and sites to see in Salem.

      Candi did you go to Salem, Massachusetts and go through the house? It reminds me of The Lane Place in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Every year I go there to The Strawberry Festival. I love going through old houses. I guess that's why I bought an old house and filled it with antiques.

      Hey Michael....This was in October of last year, I try to fly to Salem every October for all the crazy haunted festivities. I have photo's from all the homes open for touring there, I just think that whole town is amazing. You should go check it out sometime...beautiful homes to tour during the day, then at night you have all the "haunted tours" and historical graveyard tours....and the bars aren't bad either lol.

      I agree Phil, I keep hoping to hit the lottery but my numbers never come up lol
