European Touches

Why save it? Eli intended his house to be a town showpiece, outfitting it with exquisite hand-carved millwork, including an oak staircase imported from Europe. Interior doors and mantels feature floral motifs that mimic the balustrade's carvings.

Shown: Predating the Panama Canal, this imported oak staircase made the long trip from Europe via Cape Horn.
