Historic Antique Armoire Circa 1830 84 X 42 X 17 For Sale

Historic Antique Armoire Circa 1830 84 X 42 X 17

From the "Hale Estate," Marietta, Ohio. The armoire was built into the home on the banks of the Ohio & Muskingum Rivers, in the 1830s. The Hale home was on the Marietta Historical Registry as a way -station for the "Underground Railway," (shelter for escaped slaves en-route to Canada, prior to and during the Civil War). Shortly after World War II, about 1947 the city condemned the home to make room for a major highway. Armoires were often built into homes as a small clothes closet. When the home was being torn down, the Hale family removed the 84x42x17 closet and took it to Newport, Ohio, 35 miles north for Grandma Hale's use in her small bed-room in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Catey, and family.

In 1980, Phyllis Huston, a foster child of the Catey's, was visiting the old home and made an inquiry about the "closet," as it no longer was in the home. The current renters told her they had put it in the back storage building and would be disposing of it. Phyllis ("Lil") and her husband, Bob, took the armoire to their home in California, and restored it to it's original status. On moving to Arkansas in 1994, they moved it to their retirement home where it still remains as of this date, March 1, 2011.This is a beautiful piece of furniture that has been completely restored. freight will be adjusted to your zip code and your offer amount ty.
