Now let's walk into The Wilson House.
Below is the living room of The Wilson House. Yes! It is as warm and as welcoming as it looks!
In the above photo, walk into the living room up to the blue davenport. Then turn around and you see the front of the living room as you see it in the below photo.
The living room invites quiet reading and reflection.
Before we take-a-look at the dining room, let's see the kitchen.
The Wilson House has rooms upstairs for visitors to spend-the-night. We have stayed overnight on other visits but did not do so this visit. So we have no photographs of the rooms upstairs.
The dining policy changes depending upon the time-of-year and other circumstances. If there is a weekend retreat or other event, three meals-a-day can be served. During our prior visits we enjoyed breakfast and dinner.
Below you see the dining room.
The kitchen is through the door to the far right above. Straight ahead of us is the living room.
If you walk through the door and into the kitchen area, you find a hallway. Walking down the hallway, to your left, is a general purpose room. Below are photos taken inside of this room where some meetings are held.
The main meeting room area of The Wilson House will be shown further below.
I have had the honor and the privilege and the joy to attend men's meetings in this room on a number of visits to The Wilson House including this visit in October 2014.
Now back to the dining room.
Below are photos of this room.
Back to the dining room for a close-up look at the dining room hutch. To the left below you can peek into the laundry room. To the right below you have a peek into the above room.
I could weep quiet tears of joy and humble appreciation for all of the years and years and years of work that so many volunteers and patrons have put into the restoration of The Wilson House.
During my first visit in October of 1988 The Wilson House was absolutely beyond repair!
The quilt below is but one example of the warmth and of the love that abounds here!
What do you say that we all have a meeting in The Wilson House.
Straight ahead, in front of the far wall, is the table that the meeting secretary sits at to conduct a meeting.
Above is a close-up of the secretary's table. We sat on the tan couch on the left.
The above photo shows the area to the right of the above two photos. Are you getting the feeling of how very comfortable it is to be in The Wilson House? Can you feel the love that has gone into its restoration? Every single item had to come from some place!
In the above photo, walk ahead bearing to your right and look diagonally to your left back at the meeting secretary's area as you see below.
To assist you to orient to the meeting room I again show the below photo.
In the above photo, walk ahead and to your left. Then turn around and you see the below view of the meeting room.
I will close this post with the following quote from Mister Edward Everett Hale:
I am only one, but still, I AM one.
I cannot do everything, but still, I CAN do something.
And because I cannot do everything, I will NOT refuse to do the something that I can.
IF I had had so much as one clue that I was going to open up this website and show photos that I snapped on our trip, believe me! I would have taken many more and made notes to go with them.
That being expressed, I HAVE done what I can do.
Thanks Doc 89403 for your undying support for so many years!
Over and Out until the next time!
