my aunt's photo of my childhood home

my aunt's photo of my childhood home. one mile north of Interlaken new York. I lived there for 19 years and often stayed there until 1975, when my mother died. someone then bought the house and really really did a good job re-doing the house. I have not been back there since 1998.
this is the kind of countryside where the guy marries the lady next door and lives in the same house for 30 to 60-plus years! my mother and father did. two aunts also lived in their homes for 50 years. Imagine: the same telephone number for 60 years!
the house was built maybe in 1830s. was a stagecoach tavern. It has about 14 to 16 rooms. "greek revival" they call it. then new age added on.
