Where oh Where Have the Fireplaces Gone?
We are buying an 1875 Classic Farmhouse (I am told) style in Western PA. Though the house has three chimneys, and is a massive 3600 square feet, there is but one small fireplace in the living room.
Home has a total of 13 rooms and there are Victorian cast iron radiators throughout, but I find it hard to believe a house built in 1875 has only this one fireplace. I want to go looking for more in the walls and restore them, but am I on a fool's errand? Could this really be all there is?
