1. Under Renovation:
Worsell Manor was here before the house was built, it was the name given to the land grant...the house was built later. The house is currently under a massive renovation. I had the pleasure of consulting with the new owner about the refurbishing of the ancient door locks and hardware, and was given a brief tour. The house is a center hallway design with 4 angled fireplaces, and an awesome entryway and staircase. Purchase of the staircase was purportedly offered by Winterthur Museum in Delaware. [the new owners decided they would rather keep it though]- Stop back to this marker page for future photos as I will post them as I take them. The future of Worsell Manor (Mannor) is that of a destination venue. The barn which has "silo's with character" is also getting a facelift and will be getting a new roof in the next few weeks.
