    so sad to hear it went into decay, yet thrilled to hear you are saving it! My diabetic/blind great-great Aunt Gladys was allowed to live there with help until she died, and the family sold it (1970s- early 80s -- I'll ck) I think a retired military officer and his wife bought it and then it was a b&b for awhile? I'll FB you and see what info I can gather and provide!
