Candlelight Tours

Late in October, the Iles House opened for candlelight tours on Friday and Saturday nights. In candlelight, the restored surfaces and preserved antiques take on a mellow and mysterious glow. One can almost hear the past come alive.

They are some great photos, indeed. I should like to see if I can find some matching "before" shots of the interior during the restoration.

I've posted an item about the house on my blog, New Springfield.

Thanks so much for your comment and also link to your excellent site. I'll make a permanent link here to New Springfield and would appreciate it if you could do the same for the Iles House site.

I also enjoyed seeing your genealogy site. I run one for my family at
