Bethlehem in Grafton County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
Angel of the Mountains
This house was built in 1893 for the William O. Kelner Family who named it The Gables. Builder S.D. Morgan graced this Queen Anne style home with lavish interior woodwork to include a six panel picture window on the landing of a uniquely detailed staircase. Wood paneling, hardwood floors and hand-carved mantles distinguish this home. It became an annex to the Howard House prior to its renovation as a home and then a B & B.
Erected by Bethlehem Redevelopment Association.

After spending several seasons in Bethlehem at the Abbott Cottage, William Kellner and his wife Clara decided to acquire land and become permanent summer residents. The Kellner's contracted with famous architect Sylvanus D. Morgan in 1893 to build their 16 room summer cottage known as "The Gables". The cottage was Morgan's first project in Bethlehem with many more to follow. The Gables was one of his most innovative and challenging and drew much local praise for its exceedingly handsome design.
