This house was once used as a boarding house back in the day. It was featured on “If these walls could talk” because of hidden room upstairs that was discovered. The original wallpaper found under sheetrock in the entry parlor was sent to Bradford and Bradford Wallpaper Manufactures and their artist reproduced that exact paper, named it “Lake Charles,” and is now available for sale. Renovated in 2014.
