A few weeks ago I went on a "girl trip" to Buffalo Gap, Texas, with long time college friends. We stayed in the 1879 Reddell House which is the oldest house in the Abilene area still in its original location. Its renovation was finished in the fall of 2011. Originally referred to as the Boone House, the structure earned its new name when renovation crews discovered a postcard lodged behind the fireplace mantle revealing that the original family to live in the house were the Reddells.
We enjoyed the cozy ambiance of the original building, with its wood floors, high ceilings, old-style furnishings, and narrow staircase — combined with all modern amenities.
In the museum across the road, we found a painting of how the house must have looked "back in the day".
