BHS Summer Meeting June 10, 2-4 p.m.

Tour the historic Thomson-Denny House in Glasgow, a magnificent Italianate mansion built in 1875 by James S. Thomson, a descendant of Pocahontas. This 29 room house has 10,000 sq ft of floor space. The house was later owned by Jack H. Denny, a Glasgow lawyer. The current owner is Kimberly Reckner, who operates the house as a bed-and-breakfast facility and as a location for special occasions.

The home features 7 fireplaces, beautiful alternating oak and walnut floors, a grand staircase, intricate plaster crown moldings and ceiling medallions, 12 foot ceilings, walnut woodwork, and interior louvered shutters. The upper cupola provides a panoramic view.

The inside walls are 3 brick thick and all of the outside walls are 4 brick thick. It is estimated that there are well over a million bricks in this house and it would cost over a Million Dollars to rebuild this house today! This stately mansion sets on over an acre with large trees. Some furnishings stay including the pipe organ and large wardrobe.

There will be a $5 a person fee for the tour.
