Gosh darnit! You know I REALLY want to know about the polygamy pit! Don't make us wait too long for that one.That was one grand house for back then. Holy Toledo!
Yes indeed, one FINE house. Who owns it now ?Looks like a vintage museum...just lovely.I remember when I was little my best friends grandfather married his sister in law after his wife died...I thought that was so odd..but learned later that was common even in the Victorian Era. Rose
I totally want to live in that house. And I know exactly what the polygamy pit was for. Those people then were total artisians. Who would have thought to make wood into marble with a little paint. I'd love to see (LIVE) in that house.
What a beautiful home. If only walls could talk. I bet it would have a lot to tell lol.
Hi Jake.....thanks for sharing these photos with us. Everything has been saved and is in such pristine condition. Isn't it amazing how little folks needed to make a house back then. Simple furnishings just enough to cover basic needs.xoJo
I love this house and it's been well kept! Who lives there now?? Love the furniture and It's hard to believe that mantle is pine wow. I thought it was marble, I thought old Canute was rich :) Very cool more more more! I got my blogger fixed, hooray.
Great photos...great house...so much history. Polygamy pit??? HUH?????
I came across your blog doing a google search on Canute Peterson, my great-great-great grandfather. I visited Canute and Sarah's house in Ephraim this summer. It was amazing. My mother spoke fondly of visiting Grandma Jensen (Saze) in Ephraim. Visiting the house was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed reading your blog posts on Canute and Sarah. I also have copy of Edith's book but had not seen "Sarah's Letters" I would love to find out more about Canute and Sarah and their family and would love to share what info I have.
