Inside the Mills Family Home

The old home is in a sad state of repair. It's being used a field offices for the Varn Timber Company - which owns the land. Maybe someday they will allow the home to be sold to someone who'd be willing to renovate it.

The upper floor was also in terrible shape. Rotting vegetables (potatoes, maybe?) had been left on the floor. They were still there on my return trip near 2 years later!
Hallway Inside Mills HouseThis hallway is on the right side when facing the front of the house. It connects an addition that was built in the back of the house. Judging by the wood siding and doors, it looks like it used to be an open porch.
