This is the house that love built.
This is the home of George Henry Martin Johnson and his English born wife Emily Susanna Howells. It is a love story. It stands as a testament to the remarkable lives of the Johnson Family, who resided here for 28 years from 1856 to 1884.
The rooms of this home echoed with the traces of children’s laughter, music, dinner parties, and political debates, the clanging of dishes, the dreams of dreamers, and the weary sighs of mourning for loved ones, lost.
Every inch of this home has a story to tell, from the tip of her toes to the top of her head.
The home is a true blending of both English and Hodinosho:ni cultures, inside and out.
