Springside Hall in Carleton Place has changed through the years like most older homes and I am documenting it all so down the line people will see how the house once was.
2020 same location as the photo above of the Finlayson family. The doorway was moved in 1995 during the fire renovations. Why? Because there were initially two doorways. One here and the other a few feet down. We chose the one a few feet down because it made the living room bigger.
Her is how it looked like in 1995 before the other doorway was discovered. Under the stairs bathroom to the right. Photo from 1983.
Here is how the doorway to the dining room looks today in 2020 going into the dining room. There was also a beveled glass in-wall dining room cedar china/ good linens cupboard on the side of the boarded up opening but it was reinstalled in the dining room to be kept as part of history’s sake.
