Historic Thompson House, now known as Russet Ridge Farm, Eminence

We entered through the back and side yard but what a
GRAND ENTRANCE this was in it's day...and still! 
It is awe-striking and could make you dizzy just looking upward; what a climb up to the cupola!

There just behind some guests in the dining room you can glimpse the slender spiral of the staircase.
Those doors...they are 9 ft. tall!

Knowing the doors are 9 ft. tall helps you appreciate the height of the ceiling!

Without a doubt this is a musical family!

 

After our house tour we retreated to the family's summer house,
ideally set-up for enjoying the music of the Barefoot Girls & Friend.
