Preserving Original Decorative Finishes

Part of what makes Lakeport so intriguing is the remarkable number of original and early painted surfaces that remain intact. Many of the doors and mantels still exhibit the 150- year-old work of the original unnamed mid-19th century painter. There is one door surface believed to be the work of his apprentice. The woodwork on the first floor was entirely over-painted in the 20th century. To the extent possible, manual and chemical methods have been used to reveal the original work. Damage to the original work caused by abuse has been repaired. When it was obvious that loss to the original surface was caused by use and wear, the surface has been left worn.
