Closet turning back into passage way between library and office, entry way reopened at a historical home in downtown fuquay-varina, entry way reopened at a historical landmark in fuquay-varina, entry way reopened at the ballentine-spence house, secret passageway opened at historical landmark in north carolina, Wall to left of fireplace being opened up into doorway at the Ballentine-Spence House
The passageway was originally installed back around 1925 by the Spence family which provided guests with an easy way to access the entire east side of the house.
With the help of local wood sleuths we discovered the original wooden doorway casings and header boards which had been carefully stored in the old carriage house by former owners: Jim & Shirley Hunsberger.
We are now able to close the main library doors and open up the entire east side of the house once more for fun parties and intimate evenings at home.
Thank you for being a part of our journey.
