Inspected this amazing home in Springfield built in1916, and located a few blocks from the Frank Lloyd house (see note below).
The house originally had automated gates on the driveway. The original wood paneling and floor to ceiling trim in all the rooms was in perfect condition and beautiful to admire and be amazed at the workmanship. The bathrooms had big comfortable claw footed bath tubs and original undamaged tile work on the walls and floor.
What really impressed me was this amazing telephone system. There were telephones in all the rooms and the kitchen, as well as in the “servants” quarters which were up a rear stairs from the kitchen.
Who would have thought that just twenty years after the first intercom system was invented, a home in Springfield, Ohio would have such a modern piece of equipment. Unfortunately they were not operational at the time of our inspection.
The first successful clear speech telephone call was made by Alexander Graham Bell and Watson on March 10, 1876,
The house is fully restored and can be toured check their website for info
