My husband found this story and shared it with me. I had to share it with you, of course.
It’s a story about a shingle sided house built in 1905 and sits on its own island in Narragansett Bay near Jamestown, RI. It sat empty for 20 years until 1961 when Henry Wood offered a mere $3,500 but was turned down. That didn’t stop him, he offered $3,600 and they took it! It took loads of love and an army to bring it back, but this place was well worth it.
This is one lucky guy! What a great find. I’d love the opportunity to stumble on such a gem in the rough. Just imagine the wonderful breezes and views through each of its 65 windows!
