House update: New old heart pine flooring

This flooring is the most recent restoration project! It is reclaimed heart pine that we got at a salvage yard. All the original floors in the Wonder House were heart pine- sourced locally in the 20’s! This matches back perfectly with the original floors that we currently still have intact or have patched up.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, a few of the original heart pine floors in the Wonder House were lost due to water and termite damage. We hope to have all the floors replaced to their original glory in the future, however it is very difficult to find enough salvaged flooring that matches size wise.

If you know of anyone that deals in salvaged lumber, send us an email at wonderhousebartow@gmail.com.

Halloween themed tours begin October 4th and run through October 27th.

The house will be decorated for Halloween but the tours will resume as regular historic tours for the month of October. We will not have zombies popping out at you, we promise!
