In the last post, I asked you to identify this item.
You guessed it!
This old-fashioned doorbell is the first I have seen. Instead of pushing a button, one walked up to the door and twisted the doorbell. Notice the beautiful woodwork and of course, that beautiful stained glass window. I understand it is original to the wonderful old Victorian House in Clifton Forge, VA. locally referred to as the Hawkins House.
I have read it took Mr. Robert P. Hawkins three years to painstakingly build this beautiful home in the late 1880’s. Isn’t it lovely? Gorgeous workmanship! This was a home that was built to last.
This reminds me that through the Lord Jesus Christ, I have a home that will last forever and can have sweet fellowship with Him. And you can too!
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me.”
