The Hearthstone House has such beautiful wood work on the first floor. All the woodwork was hand carved in the 1880's, from floor to the 12 foot ceilings. There are also 9 hearths (fire places) in the house. Each one decorated with ceramic tiles of different themes. This is the first house in the world that had electric provided by hydroelectric power. The origanal light fixtures are very ornate brass, and were made for electric or gas, in this case they were converted to electric, made universally for both for gas or electric. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and every time we visit a historic site we learn new things. I would definately reccommend this attraction to anyone visting the Appleton area.
