Breckinridge Home

The Breckinridge home is a ranch style home with a walkout lower level. There are white oak hardwood floors, pine ceilings, wainscoting and several quilts on display. The owners have a large collection of wooden houses from places they’ve visited, a thimble collection and an organ that came from the home of Confederate General Jubal Early. Ron has a collection of antique cameras, and Linda displays her medals from her Dragon Boat racing days. A gallery shows historic family pieces and pictures from the Civil War and of relatives with ties to Presidents Jefferson and Buchanan
