In The Way
Old Lady Henderson was the widow of a World War II hero.
Her house, with uneven pine floors, built in 1790, belonged to a famous Civil War historian.
Abraham Lincoln spent several evenings with the Custuses here strategizing possible outcomes.
The stone fireplace shows exquisite handiwork.
A tunnel leads to the nearby park, once a dense forest.
“Get rid of it,” says Morgan Baum.
Old Lady Henderson refuses to let it be torn down: so much historical value!
At the end of Morgan Baum’s day, the only thing left standing is an old stone fireplace and a tunnel.
