The details throughout The Richardson House all seem to share a little piece of history. This decorative detail that greets visitors as they ascend to the second floor has its own story. In the early 1990s, this piece was thrown in the trash during the House's restoration. The owners at the time felt it was ugly and unusable. Jeannine Karnovski, who was the original manager of The Richardson House Bed & Breakfast, decided that it was much too valuable of a memento to discard. The piece was restored and rehung in its original location. We're certainly glad she did.
