Some people seem to think the cats might fall down the shaft. This is only temporary.  Until I can have an "Elevator Raising Party" to get the elevator up to the top floor and secured.

    Totally ruined this historic structure…a kitchen is now a bedroom? Sad. I loved this place as it was before it was purchased.

      Thanks for your interest. We only changed the rooms that were created in the 1980s. We have not changed anything that was original to the store. We have even been removing more from the 80s to get it back to original.
