    Awesome! I wonder if the finial design has any significance to the family? At Biltmore, there are acorn finials because the acorn is in the Vanderbilt family crest.

      Interesting… we haven’t heard anything about it. Maybe we should make something up that sounds interesting. =)

    It looks great being all put back together. Well done for just being the 2 of you working on it. Now that the hard tedious job is done some of the other projects will be a piece of cake😅. I love watching the old girl come back to life and I can’t wait for the next project to begin.

    I so enjoy watching your weekly videos from my home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I was born in 1940 and grew up at 1225 Lexington Rd., down the road from Mooreland House. Back in those days, being neighborly was an important activity. Often on Sunday afternoons, following church and a big Sunday dinner, we would pile in the car and go visit one of our neighbors. I remember, on occasion, coming to Mooreland House to visit Minnie Ball Goddard. Because I was very young, I don’t recall anything about the house or about Minnie Ball herself for that matter–just the faint recollection of going there. Through the years I remember that we always referred to the house as “the castle” with all its surrounding land. And then part of the property was sold to a developer who created the Green Acres subdivision. I remember my father not being very happy about that development not only because of the loss of farmland, but also because he feared water issues–which, in fact, turned out to be true with houses flooding. My dad, who had a sharp wit, always referred to Green Acres as “Minnie Ball’s Bottom”!!
    Today, my nephew, Zack Ison, lives at my homeplace and continues to farm. I believe he came over and introduced himself to you because he is renting and farming the remaining Moore land from the man who previously owned the house.
    All of this–PLUS hearing the train come through Harrodsburg and blow its whistle almost every time you make a video–bring a flood of memories from my childhood! Thank you!

      Thank you so much for sharing your story! We love hearing about people that have interacted with the Mooreland House. It is really cool that most of Harrodsburg calls it the Castle. We did enjoy meeting Zack.
