The Harrison House

Stepping into the Harrison House is like stepping into another world. The old wood of the walls, the hand-hewn oak corner posts, the chamfered summer beams and exposed joists create an atmosphere of antiquity. The unique corner cupboard and huge hall fireplace are products of two hundred and fifty years ago.
